MORTON, Ill. -- The left lane of westbound Interstate 74 will be closed between Interstate 155 and Interstate 474 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Friday.

IDOT said the lane closure is necessary while crews relocate a barrier wall. The work is expected to be completed Saturday morning, weather permitting.

Also, 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.
