Road closure planned in Jackson County, Ill.

A section of Makanda Road in Jackson County, Illinois, will be closed starting Wednesday night, according to the state transportation department.

The Illinois Department of Transportation says a small section of Makanda will close just west of the railroad crossing starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 4. The section will be closed so a drainage structure can be repaired.

IDOT says the road is expected to reopen by 7 a.m. on Friday, May 6, if weather allows. The department says drivers should find an alternate route. Message boards and signs will be up to alert drivers to the closure.
