Upcoming lane closures on I-74

PEORIA, Ill. – Bridge work on I-74 will result in lane closures, beginning Thursday, March 1.

The Illinois Department of Transportation said crews will be working to widen and replace the decks of two bridges carrying I-74 over a railroad crossing, just west of Sterling Ave. in Peoria.

Traffic on I-74 will be reduced to one lane in each direction during this project. Crossovers will be built to allow eastbound and westbound traffic to share two lanes of I-74 while work on each bridge structure is completed.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of October.

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