Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019, daytime lane closures will impact the moveable bridges over the Des Plaines River at Ruby Street (Illinois 53), Jackson Street, Cass Street (westbound U.S. 30), Jefferson Street (eastbound U.S. 30), McDonough Street (U.S. 6/U.S. 52) and Brandon Road.
The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that the construction of a central control office and upgrades to the electrical equipment need to take place during this time. The preliminary design work is expected to be completed within two weeks.
Motorists can expect lane closures and should be prepared for delays and are reminded to slow down and use extreme caution when driving in the vicinity of the work zone. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment. For the safety of workers and drivers do not use cell phones or text.
