I-55 patching & paving starts Monday

The Illinois Department of Transportation said that patching and resurfacing of northbound and southbound Interstate 55 from Weber Road to Interstate 80 in Will County will begin on Monday.
Overnight and weekend lane closures will be needed over the next eight months. Major travel delays are anticipated; use of alternate routes is encouraged.
 To complete the work, motorists should expect various overnight and weekend lane and partial ramp closures on both sides of I-55. The closures will take place from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays, with weekend closures starting at 9 p.m. Fridays to 10 a.m. Sundays. At least one lane in each direction will remain open.
 The project, which consists of resurfacing the 13.6-mile stretch of I-55, is expected to be completed in spring 2023.
 Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time when traveling through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
