Lane Closures on I-474

August 10, 2011 Updated Aug 10, 2011 at 3:40 PM CDT

The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced two projects that start this week on I-474.

Intermittent lane closures will be in effect along eastbound and westbound I-474 just south of where it meets I-74 in Peoria County on Thursday, August 11th.

Additionally, the eastbound and westbound driving (right) lanes of I-474 at the Shade Lohmann Bridge will be closed, beginning Friday, August 12th.

These lane closures are necessary for shoulder upgrades in advance of upcoming work on the bridge.

The lane closures will be in effect for approximately two weeks. Following this, the eastbound and westbound passing (left) lanes will be closed at this location.

Please slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work zones.
