West State Street to open to traffic again soon


After being closed for months to allow for a massive construction project, Rockford's West State Street will reopen to traffic during the winter months.

While the project is far from finished, workers will open the street during the winter while construction work is halted for the cold weather.

"If weather permits, we're going to get all four lanes open, or at least three," Rockford Public Works Director Tim Hanson said. "So there's a lot of things coming right down to the end. We're not done with the project by any means, but we want to have it open in the winter, so we're committed to it, and in that regard we are going to that."

The construction project is due to be completed by early 2015.
