The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced lane restrictions starting this weekend on the eastbound and westbound I-55/64 lanes just east of the Poplar Street Bridge.

Motorists should expect delays and allow extra time for trips through this area as construction is scheduled to begin at 8:00 a.m. and continue through the day. It is encouraged that when feasible, drivers should take advantage of alternate routes.
