Zachary Held, of 7764 Galena Road, Bristol, was stopped at about 10:15 a.m. Monday for driving 84 mph through the 45 mph construction zone with workers present, the report said.
A search of his vehicle turned up a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun behind the center console and a loaded firearm magazine in the glove box, the sheriff's office said.
Held was charged with speeding and unlawful use of a weapon because he is not old enough to possess a handgun under state statute, the sheriff's office said. The legal age to own a handgun in Illinois is 21.
Held was taken to the Kendall County Jail.
