    AN ACT concerning transportation.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Illinois Highway Code is amended by changing
Sections 4-407 and 4-408 as follows:
 
    (605 ILCS 5/4-407)  (from Ch. 121, par. 4-407)
    Sec. 4-407. The Department may temporarily close to traffic
any portion of a State highway for the purpose of constructing,
repairing or making improvements thereon. When a portion of a
State highway with a route marking is so closed, the Department
shall arrange with local authorities or otherwise to maintain
efficient detours around the portion of the State highway which
is closed and, except for an unanticipated emergency as
determined by the Department, shall post notice of the detour
locations on the Department's website no later than 10 days
before the detour becomes active. Such detour shall be plainly
and conspicuously marked with signs by which traffic may be
guided around that part of the highway so closed.
(Source: P.A. 84-873.)
 
    (605 ILCS 5/4-408)  (from Ch. 121, par. 4-408)
    Sec. 4-408. The Department may, upon application by the
proper authorities of any local governmental agency, issue a
permit to such agency to temporarily close to traffic any
portion of a State highway for any public purpose or for any
temporary needs of such agency. Such permit shall be issued
only upon the explicit agreement of the local governmental
agency to assume all liabilities and pay all claims for any
damages which shall be occasioned by such closing and such
agreement shall be made a part of every such permit. When a
State highway is closed by a local governmental agency under
the terms of a permit, the agency shall maintain efficient
detours satisfactory to the Department around the portion of
the closed highway. Except for an unanticipated emergency as
determined by the Department, the Department and the local
governmental agency shall post notice of the detour locations
on the Department's website and the local governmental agency's
website no later than 10 days before the detour becomes active.
A hyperlink on a local governmental agency's website to posted
notices on the Department's website shall satisfy the
requirements under this Section. A local governmental agency
that does not have a website maintained by a full-time staff or
a municipality with 1,000,000 or more inhabitants shall not be
required to post detour locations under this Section. Such
detour shall be plainly and conspicuously marked with signs by
which traffic may be guided around that part of the State
highway so closed.
