Look for some traffic slowdowns on I-74 and I-55 Southwest of Bloomington.

IDOT says work is scheduled to begin Monday on the Interstate-55 bridges over I-74.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane while the existing bridges are replaced.

Bloomington's Stark Excavating has the $7.6 million dollar construction contract.

The bridge replacement work is expected to be finish in December.
