Traveling over the Fourth of July should be a little easier on many Illinois highways. The state Department of Transportation is suspending road work and reopening lanes wherever possible. But that won’t be possible everywhere.
Lane reductions will continue for the ongoing project on Business Loop 55/Peoria Road over the Sangamon River. And if you’re traveling to St. Louis, you will still encounter lane reductions on Interstate 55 between Illinois 140 and Illinois 143 in Madison County.
