Lane restrictions are scheduled to be in place along Illinois 159 in Fairview Heights and Swansea beginning Sunday evening, weather permitting, the Illinois Department of Transportation said.

One lane in each direction from just north of Fountains Parkway in Fairview Heights to just north of Rosewood Village Drive in Swansea will be restricted so workers can perform pavement patching, surface removal, resurfacing, curb repair and sidewalk work, IDOT said.

Work on the project is planned to take place between 6 p.m. and 3:30 a.m.

Work is expected to be completed by September, IDOT said.
