The Illinois Department of Transportation announces nightly lane closures on Interstate 55/70 from the I-55/70/270 interchange to 2.6 miles east, beginning on Monday, March 8, weather permitting.
Both directions will be reduced to a single lane in each direction during the hours of 6 PM through 6 AM nightly. This stage of work is necessary to make pavement repairs and is expected to be completed by May 1.
This stage of work is part of a larger project that will include many additional lane closures. The times and locations of future closures will be announced as the project continues. The entire project is expected to be completed by November 2021.
Drivers may experience delays when traveling through the work zone. Drivers are urged to reduce speed, be alert for changing conditions, obey all construction signage, and refrain from using mobile devices while approaching and traveling through the work zone.
