PEORIA, Ill. -- IDOT announced Wednesday that traffic on eastbound and westbound I-74 between I-474 and Morton Avenue will be stopped for up to 20 minutes at a time at various times between 8:30 p.m. Thursday and 5:30 a.m. Friday.

The temporary traffic stoppages are necessary for crews to remove overhead sign trusses.

The overall project is the complete reconstruction of I-74 from Pleasant Hill Road to Morton Avenue in Tazewell County. The project is expected to be completed in 2015.
