Workers were busy Tuesday at the construction site on U.S. 30 and Route 40 in Rock Falls. “The work was supposed to start Sept. 16, but we found out Nicor was working on a project in the area, so they waited for them to finish,” Mayor Bill Wescott said. The Route 40 intersection work will extend to the Hennepin Canal area of the road, ending north at 16th Street. The U.S. 30 project area is a block west of Lindy Avenue and east to the canal. Updates on the project are available online. IDOT District 2 updates on Twitter can be found at @IDOTDistrict2.
