CHAMPAIGN -- Drivers can expect to see more and more construction on the roads since this is the time of year projects are in full swing. So much of the work has to do with the weather.

IDOT is working to widen Windsor Road. All the rain earlier this month kept crews from doing that. Now, workers are back on track. Engineers say they had to  work a few Saturdays to catch up.

Crews will be pouring concrete the next few days, but they say their challenge is always making sure drivers can get around. Currently, Windsor Road only has one lane. The finished project will include two car lanes and two bike lanes. IDOT says they hope to finish their part of the construction by fall.
