Rt. 143 To Open

WGEL fan Tammy Ritzheimer Mount shared this photo with us in August, showing the progress on the Rt. 143 Bridge construction project east of Millersburg.

The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced that IL Rt. 143, east of Pierron, will be reopened by 3:30 PM Wednesday, November 28. The road was closed back in October 2017 to replace the structure carrying the highway over Shoal Creek.

Again, IL Rt. 143 near Pierron is scheduled to be reopened by 3:30 PM Wednesday afternoon.
