New I-80/ Rt 178 ramps scheduled to open Wednesday

Posted by wlpo on September 20, 2011

A sign that reconstruction of the Interstate 80 and Route 178 interchange is coming along, two of the new on/off ramps were supposed to open to traffic Wednesday.

Joe Spika with IDOT says the contractor still has some new pavement to pour on the east side of the overpass and hopes to begin demolishing the other half of the bridge after the first of October.

Spika says the job will extend until next year but the contractor is trying to get as much done before this winter.
