MORTON, Ill. – Drivers should expect more lane closures this week in the I-74/I-474 work zone.

The Illinois Department of Transportation says the left lane of eastbound I-74 and the right lane of westbound I-74 from I-474 to Morton Avenue will be closed during the following times:

- 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 9 through 6:30 a.m. Thursday, April 10

- 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 10 through 6:30 a.m. Friday, April 11

- 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 11 through 6:30 a.m. Saturday, April 12

IDOT says lane closures are necessary to re-stripe pavement markings on I-74 and to set temporary barrier wall to allow work in the median.

Drivers should expect delays during these times.
