   Mcclure, Ill. (AP) -- Workplace-safety officials are investigating a construction worker's death at a southern Illinois road project.
   Officials haven't yet released the name of the victim who died in the accident Tuesday along Illinois Route 146, near McClure in Alexander County.
   Crews widening the road to four lanes along that stretch were installing a box culvert when there was a collapse, trapping a worker under at least a foot of drying concrete.
   The road was reopened after about two hours.
