Some lanes to reopen for holiday traffic

News

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WCIA) — As usual around the holiday, the Illinois Department of Transportation is pausing some lane closures to accommodate heavy traffic. However in Champaign County, the eastbound Interstate 74 ramp to southbound Interstate 57 will stay closed with a detour in place.

The pause in lane closures is from Friday at 3 p.m. through Sunday night. The state also reminded you that even though workers may not be out, police will still treat construction zones as such. So you should follow the work zone speed limit.
