Construction to begin soon on 251-Bottom Road intersection

Posted by wlpo on August 22, 2015

It looks like the Illinois Department of Transportation heard your concerns.

Nate Sell with the IDOT office in Ottawa said construction begins August 31st on the infamous and much-maligned Route 251 and Ben Samek – otherwise known as Bottom Road – intersection.

Sell said construction includes creating an off-set right-turn lane that will shift the southbound 251 lane to the west. According to Sell, cars turning left from Bottom Road onto 251 will be better able to see oncoming traffic.

Advanced Asphalt out of Princeton will be doing the work. Sell said construction should be completed by mid-to-late November.
