Road Closing on Belleville Street in Lebanon Starts Jan. 23

St. Clair County will begin resurfacing Belleville St. in Lebanon starting the week of Jan. 23, weather permitting. Belleville St. will be closed to all traffic at the entrance to Locust Hills Golf Course. The anticipated hours of construction are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please plan an alternate route to and from campus in advance and be sure to allow extra travel time.

Remember, Illinois State law prohibits the use of cell phones in a construction zone, whether workers are present or not. The Lebanon Police Department will fine drivers who bypass a barricade in the construction area. Consider yourself warned and don’t get a ticket!

The expected completion date for this project is June, weather permitting. Drivers can expect additional road closures or one lane passage on Belleville St. as the construction progresses. We will continue to keep you informed as more details and a projected completion date become available.

Alternative Routes - Visitors coming to campus from eastbound Route 50, in the direction of O’Fallon, should take it to Ill. Route 4 and turn left (north) at the stop sign. To get to campus, turn left onto St. Louis Street (at the stoplight at the top of the hill), then turn right onto Alton Street (at the stop sign).
