The Illinois Department of Transportation announces the left lane of westbound I-74 will be closed between I-155 and I-474 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Dec.20th for relocation of barrier wall. The work is expected to be completed Saturday morning, weather permitting. Traffic on eastbound I-74 from I-474 to I-155 has been shifted to the south onto the recently constructed pavement and is also now using the temporary ramp to I-155. The overall project is the complete reconstruction of I-74 from Pleasant Hill Road to Morton Avenue in Tazewell County, including construction of additional through lanes on I-74; reconstruction of the I-155 interchange into a new configuration; ramp improvements at the Morton Avenue interchange; removal of eight existing structures on I-74 with replacement of six of those structures; pavement removal and replacement; installation of highway lighting; and, installation of roadway drainage. The project is expected to be completed in 2015.
