The Illinois Department of Transportation announces a lane closure on eastbound Interstate 64 approximately 1 mile west of US 51 (exit 61) beginning at 7 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, weather permitting.
The right lane will be closed to allow IDOT District 8 Operations crews to complete pavement patching in this area. All lanes are expected to be open by 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14. All entrance and exit ramps will remain open during construction.
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.
