Traffic will be reduced to one lane at various times starting Monday on three bridges in West-Central Illinois for washing projects.

The Illinois Department of Transportation said flaggers will direct motorists on the Bayview and Memorial bridges in Quincy, and the Keokuk-Hamilton Bridge during the bridge-washing.

All in One Management and Services Inc. of Springfield, Ill., was hired to complete the $32,000 in projects. Work is expected to be completed by mid-September.

Motorists are urged to slow down and be cautious while driving through the work areas.
