Bridge Construction Might Hamper Drive to the High School
As part of the project to replace the structure carrying Illinois Route 164 over Cedar Creek (approximately 1.5 miles east of U S Route 34, northeast of Monmouth, Illinois), a portion of Illinois Route 164 will be closed for the duration of the project.

This closure is anticipated to begin on March 7, 2017 and stay in effect until October 16, 2017.

A marked detour utilizing Cameron Road and US Route 34 will be in place, prior to closure. The actual closure will be northeast of the intersection with 210th Avenue and southwest of the intersection with 215th Avenue.

We house 324 students in grades 9-12.  
The building is located approximately 2 miles east of the city of Monmouth

Our Jostens rep will be here for graduation delivery on March 23 starting at 2:00 pm.  Your bill must be paid in full in order to receive your merchandise on that day.  Payments made on this date must be in the form of cash, money order or cashiers' check.  Personal checks and credit card payments will not be accepted at that time.
