Safety improvements are scheduled to take place on I-74 from the Woodford County line to the northwest side of Normal, says IDOT.
Weather permitting, road work will commence August 1. Crews will be laying 6.4 miles of high tension cable median barrier as well as placing hot mix asphalt mowing strips and working on drainage improvements.
Project completion is slated for the end of November.
Motorists are advised to slow down and use extreme caution while in this area.
