(WSIL) -- The Illinois Department of Transportation is alerting drivers of an upcoming road closure on Illinois 127 in Alto Pass.
Beginning Monday, July 26 at 7:00 a.m., Illinois 127 will be closed from Chestnut Street to just north of Rhine Road, weather permitting.
Officials say access to Bald Knob Cross, Peach Barn Winery and Alto Pass will be accessible and open to traffic. The road is expected to be open no later than Friday, August 13.
This closure is necessary to facilitate bridge removal, earthwork and pavement reconstruction. Motorists should seek an alternate route.
Advanced message boards have been placed at the intersections of IL 127 and Old 13, and IL127 and IL 146 to alert traffic of the closure.
