The Illinois Waterway Visitors Center on Dee Bennett Rd. is open again, but only for four days a week. It closed seven days a week because of federal budget constraints when the new fiscal year started on October 1. But the Army Corps of Engineers says it’ll now be open Friday through Monday from 9am to 5pm starting today (October 12).
Tour groups that have already registered for other days will still be accommodated. Group organizers can call 815-667-4054 to schedule visits.
