Heads up to Kane County drivers traveling into the city of Chicago this weekend.
The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that lane closures will take place on the inbound Eisenhower Expressway (eastbound Interstate 290) between Ashland Avenue and Morgan Street from Friday, Dec. 8, through Sunday, Dec. 10, weather permitting.
The closures are necessary for the installation of drainage structures, part of the ongoing improvements at the Jane Byrne Interchange.
Beginning at 11 p.m. Friday, the two left-most lanes will be closed on the inbound Eisenhower Expressway, reducing the eastbound lanes from four lanes to two lanes between Ashland Avenue and Morgan Street. The closures will not affect access to inbound Congress Parkway or the ramps to northbound and southbound Interstate 90/94.
All lanes will reopen by 8 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 10.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
