Road closed sign

The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that the Keithsburg Blacktop (76th Street) in Mercer County is closed effective immediately because of flooding.

The closure is at Pope Creek, about ¼ mile north of Keithsburg. The river is expected to keep rising until Sunday, which means the closure may last into late next week. Crews are installing road closed signs, and no detour will be posted.

Drivers can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the closure, drivers must find alternate routes.
