IDOT to monitor traffic during eclipse weekend

Illinois Department of Transportation is installing systems to monitor traffic during the eclipse weekend. Southern Illinois is expecting an influx of travelers coming to the area to view the eclipse in the path of totality. IDOT will be installing monitors along I-57 between routes 13 and 146. The monitors will be used to anticipate and warn drivers of possible delays. Construction projects in that area will also be postponed and closed lanes will be reopened temporarily.
