Route 26 closed between Princeton and Ohio

Posted by wlpo on July 13, 2015

Getting in and out of Princeton from the north side is a little tougher these days.

The Illinois Department of Transportation has closed Route 26 from just north of Princeton to past City-County Park near the Pioneer Research Center because of a stretch of the road is damaged and considered unsafe. The closure could last into early August. The Bureau County Emergency Management Agency says the Red Covered Bridge road is also closed until further notice due to safety concerns.

Detours include using Routes 34 or 40 to bypass the closed section of Route 26.
