ILLINOIS -- IDOT wants to add some extra safety precautions for motorists when traveling through work zones. The Department of Transportation is installing more warning signs and speed indicators before drivers enter construction areas.

The new signs would be placed further away from work zones to give drivers a chance to reduce speed. The speed limit will drop from 70 to 55 mph in these areas.
