Interstate 74 Lane Closures Begin October 4, 2019


The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that lane closures along eastbound Interstate 74 between I-474 and I-155 begin Friday, October 4, 2019.

The closures are necessary as part of ongoing bridge painting in the area.  Eastbound I-74 will be reduced to one lane through October.

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.
