Rantoul road to reopen

RANTOUL — South Murray Road, on the west side of the village, is expected to be open in the next couple of days.

Greg Hazel, Rantoul public works superintendent, said the turn lane on the north end of the project was completed last week.

"The subcontractor was on site ... doing pavement marking and striping" and has some of the tentative markings down for the turn lanes, Hazel said at the village board's study session.

Work was delayed part of Tuesday and Wednesday by bad weather.

The pavement marking and striping resumed Thursday.

The village of Rantoul hopes developers will target the property bordering South Murray Road for commercial development.
