The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that I-70 from 2.5 miles east of the I-55/70/270 interchange to Silver Lake will be restricted to one lane in each direction beginning on Sunday evening, October 6, 2019, weather permitting. This work will take place nightly between 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM in the westbound direction and between 7:00 PM and 7:00 AM in the eastbound direction. This work is necessary to do pavement repairs and is expected to be completed by the end of October 2019.

Motorists should allow extra time when traveling through this area. Drivers are urged to reduce speed, be alert for changing conditions, obey all construction signage, and refrain from using mobile devices while approaching and traveling through the work zone.

The contractor on this project is Kinney Contractors, Inc. of Raymond, Illinois.
