The Illinois Department of Transportation announces the piers that formerly carried westbound I-74 over US 150 (Jackson Street) in Morton will be removed Sunday, July 13.
The removal of the piers will require the closure of Jackson Street under I-74 from 5 a.m. Sunday until 5:30 a.m. Monday, July 14. During this time, Jackson Street traffic will use a marked detour on Morton Avenue, Courtland Street, and Veterans Road.
The overall project is the complete reconstruction of I-74 from Pleasant Hill Road to Morton Avenue in Tazewell County.
