If you travel on I-55 SB, you’ll have two more days of gridlock. The mandatory bridge inspections on 55 over the Des Plaines River Bridge will continue through Thursday afternoon. Yesterday traffic was backed up from the River to Rt 59 in Shorewood.

IDOT has listed an alternate route through Rt 47 through Morris. When bridgework is completed Blodgett Rd project will have I-55 SB reduced to one lane south of Arsenal.
