Route 351 reopens after repairs

Posted by wlpo on May 3, 2013

You’ll find a new layer of asphalt and freshly painted white lines on Route 351 between La Salle and the Shippingsport Bridge.  The road reopened Thursday afternoon after being closed for nearly two weeks due to flooding.  Flood waters destroyed the shoulder and damaged areas of payments.

An Illinois Department of Transportation spokeswoman earlier this week said it could be two weeks before the road would reopened due to emergency work to the road and shoulder.  Heavy equipment remains at the work site.
