The Illinois Department of Transportation announced today that pothole patching is scheduled to take place in both directions of Interstate 80, between Houbolt Road, in Joliet, and Ridge Road, in Minooka, weather permitting, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 7.
Motorists can expect brief lane closures as required and should allow extra time for trips through this area. At all times, drivers are urged to pay close attention for flaggers and signs in work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment. If you encounter maintenance vehicles and workers, slow down, move over and give them space – it’s the law.
To report a pothole on a state highway or interstate, call 800.452.4368.
