Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer (R-Jacksonville) is cautioning residents about upcoming Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) road work.

“This is pretty serious,” Davidsmeyer said at Tuesday's House Floor Debate. “You are going to see IDOT crews out fixing our roads from the impact of the winter. There are a lot of people out there patching roads and doing things like that.”

Davidsmeyer said the conditions are causing serious accidents throughout the state.

“Just yesterday a major accident happened in my home county just outside of Jacksonville, and there is an IDOT worker in the hospital right here in Springfield who is in serious condition,” Davidsmeyer said. “I have a couple of friends who were close to being there when they got rear-ended by a truck when they passed patched roads.”

He said his caution was just in case.

“I just want to make sure that everybody thinks about what they are doing while they are driving our roads,” Davidsmeyer said. “There is a lot of crews are out there and we want to make sure that we are safe.”
