IDOT announces eastbound and westbound I 74 traffic will be shifted to the newly constructed lanes from Jackson Street to just east of Morton Avenue the evening of Friday, October 11th. The traffic shift is necessary to allow for reconstruction of eastbound and westbound lanes of I 74. Traffic will remain in this configuration until late November. The following lane closures will be necessary to faciliate the traffic stage change: EB I 74 left lane and WB I 74 left lane 5:30pm Thursday, October 10th to 6:30am Friday, October 11th and 5:30pm Friday, October 11th to 10am Saturday, October 12th. These lane closures are likely to result in significant traffic back ups and travel delays. Meantime, flashing yellow arrow signals will be installed at the intersection of Route 24 and 115 in Eureka, Thursday, October 10th.
