The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that the Illinois Route 117 ramps to and from westbound Interstate 74 at exit 112 will close Aug. 5.
According to a Tuesday news release from IDOT, the closures are necessary to remove and replace pavement in this area and are expected to last about four to six weeks. A detour will be posted.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
