Due to the rainfall early Thursday morning, several roads Chillicotheans may use to get to work or other activities are closed.

State Street in Mossville is closed due to flooding.

The southbound right lane of Illinois Route 29 (Galena Road) about a half mile north of the McClugage Bridge is closed and will be closed until at least Friday for debris and mud removal.

Illinois Department of Transportation crews will be working to clear the drains and culverts at this location. The lane could be reopened by Friday afternoon, depending on the weather.
