Updated Murray Baker Bridge Lane Closure Schedule
The Illinois Department of Transportation announces the following schedule for lane closures to accommodate work to prepare the Murray Baker Bridge (Interstate 74) for deck replacement later this year:
- Feb. 27-28: The right westbound lane will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Feb. 29: The right westbound lane will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
With winter weather in the forecast, these lane closures may be canceled as needed.
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.
