ELIMINATION OF WORK HAZARDS

IDOT reminds contractors heavy traffic is expected during the Labor Day Holiday. In accordance with Article 107.09 of the Standard Specifications, the holiday period will be from:

September 1 - Friday - 3:00 p.m. to

September 4 - Monday – 11:59 p.m.

All contractors on all types of contracts and all maintenance forces should be instructed to plan their work during the holiday period in accordance with the provisions of Article 107.09. Since the largest percentage of holiday traffic is carried on Interstate and other rural multilane highways, particular attention should be given to eliminating lane closures on these routes unless physically precluded by stage construction or exempted by the contract provisions.

Detour runarounds should be inspected for pavement markings, signing and needed surface repairs. Marked detours should be checked for proper signing and directional information.
