The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced that, weather permitting, construction work on US 34 in Galva will begin Tuesday, July 6.

McCarthy Improvement Company will be starting work on the 6.4-mile section of US 34 from IL 17 in Galva to IL 78 south of Kewanee.

The $2.3 million project is scheduled to be completed by mid-September.

The contractor will be milling off the existing bituminous surface, making pavement repairs and resurfacing the road.

Drivers should be prepared to stop for flaggers directing traffic past the work areas.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and drive carefully through all construction zones.
