The Illinois Department of Transportation would like to alert motorists traveling Interstate 24 eastbound of the upcoming emergency pavement patching.
On Thursday evening, May 21, the contractor will close eastbound I-24 from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. to perform pavement patching on I-24 at milepost 35.
A detour route using message boards will be in place during the closure. The eastbound traffic will be directed to take Illinois 146 to Illinois 145, then Illinois 145 to the U.S. 45/I-24 Metropolis interchange.
Motorists should use alternate routes, reduce speed, be alert to equipment and workers and use extreme caution while traveling through all work zones.
