IDOT: Construction on I-55 to begin on March 23

Posted:
SPRINGFIELD - Illinois Department of Transportation officials say road construction on Interstate 55 from Lake Springfield Bridge to Southwind Road is scheduled to begin on March 23.

Officials say crews will patch, mill, and pave I-55 and the interchange ramps at Toronto Road.  This project will result in short-term ramp closures and lane closures, with all lanes of traffic opening during peak travel times.

Lane closures will be allowed from 8:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m., beginning on Sundays at 8:00 p.m. and ending on Fridays at 6:00 a.m.  Officials say construction is expected to be completed by mid-summer of 2015.  Motorists are urged to slow down and use caution while driving through this construction site.
