Road work will be causing delays on Interstate 55, both north and south of Springfield, in the weeks ahead.
Work begins September 4th on I-55 south of Route 104 at exit 82. The highway will be reduced to one lane in each direction for bridge repair over Brush Creek… that work is expected to last until mid-November.
Meanwhile, if you’re traveling north, you’ll also encounter delays on I-55 in Grundy, Livingston and northern McLean counties. IDOT says delays could be especially bad during heavy weekend travel periods.
