IDOT announces Wednesday the eastbound and westbound I 74 traffic between I 155 and I 74 will be shifted to new pavement beginning at 5:30pm Friday, November 1st and continuing through 6:30am Monday, November 4th. The traffic shift is necessary to allow for the reconstruction of the eastbound and westbound lanes of I 74. Traffic will remain in this configuration until December. The following lane closures will be necessary to facilitate the traffic stage change: eastbound I 74 left land and westbound I 74 left lane 5:30pm Friday, November 1st through 6:30am Monday, November 4th. The lane closures will likely to result in significant delays and traffic backups.
