I-74 Lane Reductions Near Morton Tuesday, September 3, 2019
The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that westbound Interstate 74 between I-155 and I-474 will be reduced to one lane Tuesday, Sept. 3.
The lane reductions are necessary to accommodate the next stage of bridge painting in the area. Once the lanes are reopened, there will be a lane shift and reduced speed limits through the work zone. Traffic is expected to remain in this configuration until late September.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
