Just ahead of the Memorial Day Holiday, the Illinois Department of Transportation reports both lanes of Highway 51just north of DeSoto are open again after the repair of a sinkhole.

That stretch of the highway closed three weeks ago when the sinkhole emerged.

IDOT plans to reopen lanes closed for construction, where possible, for the Memorial Day holiday.

Non-emergency closures will be suspended from 3 p.m. Friday until 11:59 p.m. on Monday.

The following lane closures will remain in place during the holiday weekend.

In Jackson County, a lane reduction will continue on Highway 3 north of Illinois 151.

Lane reductions will stay in place on Interstate 24 at milepost two, southbound I-57 between mileposts 32 and 43 and I-64 at milepost 86 east of Mount Vernon.
