Tilton Construction Detours Start Monday

Construction in the 14th Street area in Tilton will begin on Monday, May 13. The street will be closed between King St. to Greenwood Cemetery Rd., and the ramps from Georgetown Rd./Illinois Route 1 will also be closed.

Detours will be in effect on DMT routes 9 Georgetown and 13 Tilton for the duration of the construction project. No completion date has been released, so riders can expect these detours to be in effect for some time.

The route 9 bus will travel southbound on Georgetown Rd., turn left at Southgate Dr., turn around at the end of the street in front of Carpet Store, return to Georgetown Rd, heading south. The bus stop at 14th St. and Hodge St. will not be served while the detour is in effect.

The route 13 bus will travel southbound on Georgetown Rd., exit I-74 westbound, and then use the Tilton exit, turning left on G Street, and then right on 5th St. Bus stops along 14th St. at King St. and Atwood St. will not be served.
