CHAMPAIGN -- Traffic was worse than normal for a few hours Monday as work continued on a hotel downtown. Builders closed one southbound lane of Neil Street at 7 am and reopened it about 3:30 pm.

Workers needed to set a crane and scaffolding for finishing some things on the outside of the building. Construction on the Hyatt Place Hotel is scheduled to wrap up next year.
