TROY – The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced nightly lane closures on I- 70/270/55 between the I-70/270/55 interchange and 2.6 miles east of the I-70/270/55 interchange, beginning on Monday, March 8, 2021, weather permitting. Both directions will be reduced to a single lane in each direction during the hours of 6:00 PM through 6:00 AM nightly. This stage of work is necessary to make pavement repairs and is expected to be completed by May 1, 2021.

This stage of work is part of a larger project that will include many additional lane closures. The times and locations of future closures will be announced as the project continues. The entire project is expected to be completed by November 2021.
