Long I-80 construction project begins

Posted by wlpo on September 7, 2014

If Interstate 80 east of Ottawa is part of your daily drive, get ready to slow down. Roadwork was scheduled to begin overnight Sunday on I-80 from the Fox River Bridge near Ottawa to the Marseilles exit.

A crew with D Construction is milling and resurfacing nearly four miles of road. One lane will be closed in both directions so when traffic is heavy, there could be delays.

Herb Jung with IDOT says it’s going to be a long project. Work will continue until Thanksgiving and then resume next spring. He says it should be completed sometime next July. Jung says he expects there to be a lot of night work.
