The detour will utilize the off ramp and on ramp of westbound I-74 at Pinecrest Drive and is necessary for beam removal. Motorists traveling westbound on I-74 should expect delays.

The detour could continue into Monday, October 29.

Pinecrest Drive traffic will be controlled by flaggers during this time. Pinecrest Drive motorists should also expect delays.

This work is part of the project consisting of beam straightening, beam replacement, and other collateral work on the structure carrying Pinecrest Drive over I-74. The overall project is expected to be completed in December.
