From Wednesday through Friday, only one eastbound lane will be reopened at 6 a.m.
The closures are necessary so workers can install scaffolding in advance of the upcoming work to repair the bridge, IDOT said.
A marked detour is planned to be in place to guide motorists around the work zone, IDOT said.
