The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that traffic on Jefferson Street in Morton will be detoured from Detroit Avenue to Veterans Avenue beginning Monday and continuing until the end of May.

The detour will take Jefferson Street traffic to Jackson Street via Detroit Avenue and Veterans Avenue, and is necessary for continued work on the road and bridge structure.

The overall project is the complete reconstruction of I-74 from Pleasant Hill Road to Morton Avenue in Tazewell County.
