CHARLESTON — Part of Illinois Route 316 between Charleston and Mattoon is scheduled to be closed for bridge repairs starting next week.

The work will be on the bridge over Riley Creek about six miles west of Charleston and is scheduled to begin Monday, according to a news release from the Illinois Department of Transportation.

The release said access to the road in other locations will be open during the construction, which is expected to be completed by Aug. 1.

It also said motorists can expect delays during the construction and should allow extra travel time or use alternate routes.
