More lane closures on I-55

The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that repairs to the bridges carrying Interstate 55 over U.S. 30, Canadian National Railroad, Mines Creek and the Materials Service abandoned railroad in Will County will begin.
The first stage of the project, installing a temporary concrete barrier wall and rumble strips, will require overnight lane and shoulder closures on both sides of I-55 between Weber Road and Interstate 80 this week. At least two lanes in both directions will remain open at all times. Daytime traffic will not be impacted.
By Monday, June 14, through late August, both sides of I-55 will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between Weber Road and Interstate 80. Access to entrance and exit ramps will be maintained.
The $5.9 million project, which includes a bridge deck overlay with structural steel repairs and joint replacement, is expected to be completed in November.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area.
