Stretch Of I-80 Buckles In Ottawa Causing Traffic Backup

Posted by wlpo on July 10, 2012

Throw-in buckled pavement to a stretch of road already under construction and you have yourself some problems.

It was slow going on westbound Interstate 80 yesterday afternoon just west of Ottawa.  IDOT crews were dealing with a piece of interstate that apparently buckled in the recent heat.  The same issue that popped up on I-39 last week.

IDOT says they’ve had dozens of reports of interstates buckling because of the heat.
