EAST PEORIA, Ill. - UPDATE: The Illinois State Police says all lanes are now open. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Traveling east on Interstate 74 through East Peoria could cause some headaches for the foreseeable future. 

Illinois State Police say the right and middle lanes are closed eastbound at Route 116 due to a road defect. 

State Trooper Lisa Osborne tells WMBD a material that helps the road elongate and shorten during seasonal changes has risen above the pavement.

Motorists are urged to be cautious in this area. 

Troopers say there is no time frame for the lanes to reopen.
