PEORIA – The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announces that beginning next week, lane closures will resume on the I–474 Shade-Lohmann Bridge in preparation for the closure of the eastbound span of the bridge Saturday, March 31st.
The majority of the closures during these two weeks will take place on eastbound I-474. Crossovers will be utilized and traffic will travel one lane in each direction on the westbound span of the bridge when the eastbound span closes for repairs at the end of the month.
This project will continue through the fall. Additional updates will be distributed as traffic shifts are scheduled.
Please slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work zones.
