(Springfield, IL) — Three of the major roads in the Illinois State Fairgrounds will be resurfaced by the time the state fair begins next month. Crews started the work this week on Main Street, Central Avenue and Illinois Avenue. The Illinois Department of Transportation is working with the Department of Agriculture and the Capital Development Board on the 475-thousand dollar project. The road work is a direct result of having a state budget done this year, but the Coliseum at the fairgrounds will remain closed this year with plans to reopen it in 2019.
