CENTRAL ILLINOIS (WCIA) — The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Thursday that lanes that have been closed for construction will reopen, where possible, for the Memorial Day holiday.

Officials said this is to minimize travel disruption in these areas. Non-emergency closures will be suspended from 3 p.m. on Friday, May 26, to 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 29, officials reported. IDOT said drivers can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips in the areas.

They urge drivers to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and stay alert for workers and equipment. Additionally, IDOT encourages drivers to buckle up and drive sober.
