PEORIA, Ill. -- The Illinois Department of Transportation announces the left lane of eastbound and westbound I-74 will be closed between I-474 and I-155 starting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday and continuing until 6:30 a.m. Friday.

The lane closures are necessary for crews to relocate temporary barrier wall.

Also, the right lane of eastbound I-74 will be closed between I-155 and Morton Avenue from 5:30 p.m. Friday through Saturday. This is necessary to make a change in the traffic pattern.

Two lanes will be maintained on eastbound I-74 but will be separated by a barrier wall for a short distance. All trucks are asked to use the left lane through the separated section.

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

IDOT asks you to please slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work zones.
