As spring arrives so does construction season. Work on a big project in our area picked back up again Monday.
The start of the second year of construction on Blackhawk Boulevard, Illinois Route 75, in Rockton began Monday. The $9 million project started a year ago and will reconstruct about a mile and a half of Blackhawk. Crews are widening lanes, reconstructing pavement and replacing storm sewers.
Construction is expected to be over by the end of the year.
