A $3 million overnight resurfacing project on one of Bloomington-Normal’s busiest roads is set to begin at the end of the month.

Parts of Veterans Parkway between Clearwater Avenue and Washington Street, as well as the intersection at Empire Street, will be down to one lane in both directions beginning July 30.

Illinois Department of Transportation District Engineer Kensil Garnett said zone paths can change by the day, so drivers need to be hyperaware of their surroundings.
