    The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced that, weather permitting; U.S. 51 in Centralia will be closed for one day on the southbound lanes starting at 8:30 a.m. Monday, and the northbound lanes starting at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

    The road closure is necessary to allow the Norfolk Southern Railway to rehabilitate their crossing.
    A marked detour will be in place to safely guide motorists around the closure. The department and the city asks that travelers be patient and use extra caution near and throughout the work area.
