Construction Zones

When approaching or entering a highway construction or maintenance area (also known as work zones), Illinois law requires motorists:

  • Slow down

Discontinue wireless/cellphone use (unless using a hands-free device that may include the use of a single-sided headset), yield to any authorized vehicles or workers in the area, 

Change to a lane away from the workers when possible and proceed with caution. 

Motorists must obey the posted construction zone speed
