IDOT plans lane restrictions just east of Poplar Street Bridge

The Illinois Department of Transportation plans to restrict two eastbound lanes on Tuesday of Interstate 55/64 just east of the Poplar Street Bridge, the agency said.

The restrictions are planned to allow workers to make repairs to the concrete bridge deck, the agency said.

IDOT said the left two lanes of the road are scheduled to be closed from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The right two lanes will remain open during work.

Significant traffic delays are anticipated, and motorists are encouraged to use alternate route, IDOT said.
