New Opening Date Set for West State Street

Although officials advise the large-scale project is not yet complete and ask that drivers use care.
ROCKFORD -- City officials say West State Street and Central Ave. will open to traffic by the end of the day on Thursday December 19th, although road work will continue through the winter months.

Traffic was expected to be allowed through last Friday, but that had to be delayed due to weather issues.  Closing the major thoroughfare has created a major detour around the area, and so city officials have been working to get traffic moving again through it as soon as possible.

Officials emphasize however that the area is still a construction zone, and ask drivers to obey work zone speed limits and to stay alert for workers when driving through the construction zone.
