New bridge on Route 26 open but not yet finished

December 27, 2018

PRINCETON – The new bridge over Big Bureau Creek on state Route 26 north of the city is open, but drivers will need to slow down before heading over it.

Work on the $2.2 million replacement project began in the spring; surface work will be finished this coming spring, the Illinois Department of Transportation said.

In the meantime, the speed limit is reduced to 45 mph as a safety precaution, IDOT said.
