The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that Illinois Highway 96 will be closed at Emery Creek, just east of 24th and State in Quincy, starting Monday.

According to IDOT, the closure is necessary for crews to complete a bridge replacement project. The work also includes pavement removal, pavement marking, placement of riprap and seeding.

That section of 96 is expected to be closed through late July with additional lane closures possible through early fall.
