IDOT warns of pavement failures due to excessive heat

Posted:
SPRINGFIELD (WREX) -

The Illinois Department of Transportation is warning drivers about the possibility of pavement buckling on roads throughout the state in the next few days.

The combination of very high temperatures and precipitation can lead to pavement expanding and ultimately buckling or blowing out, causing uneven driving surfaces in some areas.

IDOT says drivers should be aware of slowing traffic and be prepared to move over for maintenance workers and other emergency personnel.
