PEORIA, Ill. -- IDOT announced that eastbound and westbound I-74 traffic between I-155 and I-474 will be shifted to new pavement beginning at 5:30 p.m. November 1 and continuing through 6:30 a.m. November 4.

The traffic shift necessary is to allow for the reconstruction of the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-74. Traffic will remain in this configuration until December. Eastbound I-74 left lane and westbound I-74 left lane will be closed 5:30 p.m. November 1 through 6:30 a.m. November 4 to facilitate the change.

The lane closures are likely to result in significant delays and traffic backups.
