The Illinois Department of Transportation announced this week that a full closure of westbound Interstate 55/70 under Interstate 255 near Collinsville will begin Friday, Sept. 22, weather permitting.
 
Starting at 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22, westbound Interstate 55/70 will be closed directly under Interstate 255. Westbound Interstate 55/70 traffic must exit onto Interstate 255. Because of this closure, the ramp from northbound Interstate 255 to westbound Interstate 55/70 will be closed as well as the entrance ramp from Illinois 157 to westbound Interstate 55/70. Westbound Interstate 55/70 traffic west of the Interstate 255 interchange will not be affected.
 
A posted detour will direct westbound Interstate 55/70 traffic to southbound Interstate 255 to westbound Interstate 64 to westbound Interstate 55/70. Another posted detour will direct Illinois 157 traffic to Collinsville Road west to southbound Interstate 255 to westbound Interstate 64 to westbound Interstate 55/70. The ramps from westbound Interstate 55/70 to Interstate 255 will remain open at all times.
 
The closure is necessary to paint two bridges carrying Interstate 255 over Interstate 55/70. The interstate is expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, Sept. 25.
 
Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes, anticipate additional travel times and use caution while driving through and near the construction work zone.
 
By utilizing a full expressway closure and keeping construction restricted to the weekend when traffic volumes are down, IDOT aims to reduce the length of time the work zone is needed during heavier traveled weekday periods.

Wisconsin Department of Transportation  logo   Hot Weather Increases Chances For Pavement Buckling

Drivers asked to be alert for potential pavement problems, traffic slow-downs, and to move over for roadside workers including highway repair crews

Unusually hot weather in the forecast in some areas of Wisconsin this weekend could create conditions for pavement buckling. Motorists are asked to take extra caution.

Pavement buckles are most common when the weather quickly goes from cool to very hot, causing pavement to expand. This can cause concrete slabs of pavement to push against each other, and if the pressure becomes great enough the pavement can buckle. While it’s difficult to predict if or where buckling may occur, WisDOT offers the following tips for motorists:

  • Slow down, buckle up and eliminate distractions to focus your full attention on the roadway. Along with pavement issues, other concerns can include animals or debris on the roadway.
  • Watch for slowing traffic and be ready to move over for all roadside workers including highway crews as they repair damaged pavement.
  • Before your trip, check the 511 Travel Information system (www.511wi.gov) for the latest on any incidents or delays.
  • If necessary, report serious pavement issues by calling 911. Be ready to provide specific location information.

Minnesota Department of Transportation logo   I-94 Long-term Ramp and Lane Closures in the East Metro

Construction preparation continues with several ramp and lane closures on I-94 between St. Paul and Maplewood starting on April 7, weather permitting.  Beginning at 8 p.m. Friday, April 7, the northbound Highway 61 ramp to eastbound I-94 will close. This closure will remain in effect through fall 2017.

In addition, the following ramps will also close from 8 p.m. April 7 to May 2017:

  • White Bear Avenue to westbound I-94
  • Burns Avenue to eastbound I-94 (McKnight Road ramp)
  • Hudson Place to westbound I-94
  • Westbound I-94 to Hudson Place
  • Southbound Etna Street to eastbound I-94
  • McKnight Road to westbound I-94

Westbound I-94 to Etna Street is not scheduled to close this week, but will close at a later date yet to be determined.

Motorists will also encounter lane closures in both directions of I-94 between Kellogg Boulevard and the I-694/I-494 interchange:

  • Eastbound I-94 from 8 p.m. on Friday, April 7 to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 8 will be reduced to a single lane.
  • Westbound I-94 from 6 a.m. on Saturday, April 8 to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 9 will be reduced to a single lane.

Closure durations and time frames are all approximate and weather dependent.

The I-94 reconstruction and improvement project will provide a smoother, safer, long-lasting road with better pedestrian accessibility and improved drainage capabilities. Performing periodic pavement repairs at the appropriate times can greatly increase a road’s lifespan. The project helps ensure MnDOT’s transportation system will continue to serve the state for many years. Construction is expected to be complete by fall 2017.

Indiana Department of Transportation   I-65 Bridge Project to Close Lanes South of Roselawn in Jasper County

Crews to close one northbound and one southbound lane of the bridge over Moffitt Ditch

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is alerting drivers to lane closures on I-65, between IN-10 and IN-14, from mile marker 225 to 227, south of Roselawn, Monday, March 20 through the end of September. Crews will close one north and one southbound lane at a time, over the Moffitt Ditch bridge to make repairs and to restore the bridge surface.

During the project, I-65 will be open to all through traffic, but restricted to one north and one southbound lane in the work zone. Motorists should expect periodic delays and allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to the signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

Taking care of what we have

INDOT has been expanding its investments in maintenance and preservation projects to keep pavement and bridges in good condition for as long as possible, targeting bridges and roadway sections with the right treatments at the right times.

Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via the District’s social media channels: www.Facebook.com/INDOTNorthwest or Twitter @INDOTNorthwest. Or visit http://www.trafficwise.in.gov for INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service.

Michigan Department of Transportation   Southbound I-75 Detroit To Downriver

COUNTY:
Wayne
COMMUNITIES AFFECTED:
Detroit, Melvindale, River Rouge, Lincoln Park, Allen Park, Taylor, Southgate, and Brownstown Township

START DATE:
Weekend of Feb. 4, 2017

ESTIMATED END DATE:
Late 2018

PROJECT DETAILS:
Southbound I-75 will be closed from Detroit to Downriver in less than three weeks. This closure is part of the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) approximately $200 million investment in major repairs over a two-year period.

The detour begins at I-96 in Detroit to Northline Road in 2017; during 2018, the detour will be from I-96 to Sibley Road. Only southbound I-75 will be closed during the two-year period while northbound I-75 will remain open at all times.

The project includes:

  • Removing and replacing all concrete on the I-75 Rouge River bridge, the largest concrete surface in Michigan (approximately 20 football fields).
  • Replacing concrete on the I-75 bridge at Fort Street, south of Springwells Road.
  • Removing the Goddard Street bridge over I-75 and replacing it with two smaller bridges.
  • Repairing 13 other bridges along I-75 through the Downriver communities.
  • Adding intelligent transportation system (ITS) equipment. ITS includes a combination of electronic, telecommunication and information technology MDOT uses to improve safety and travel times on the transportation system.

The decision to close one direction of I-75 is based on multiple factors, including:

  • Speed: Rebuilding one side of the bridge at a time without traffic present will result in the project being completed in the shortest amount of time.
  • Cost: The shorter project duration resulting from rebuilding one side of bridge at a time will result in the lowest overall project cost.
  • Safety: If the bridge was constructed in sections with both directions of traffic sharing one side, there wouldn't be adequate room for emergency crews to respond to incidents on the bridge.
  • Mobility: Maintaining limited two-way traffic on one side of freeway would cause back-ups in both directions, as opposed to one direction. 
  • Quality: Rebuilding one side of the bridge at a time will allow construction to proceed without interruption since there will be no need to maintain traffic. The decreased vibrations from nearby traffic will result in the best quality workmanship.
  • Duration: By closing southbound I-75, construction activity will move faster since not as much time and effort will be needed to shift traffic.

Motorists will see signs announcing the closure along I-75 to allow residents, businesses, and drivers plenty of time to prepare alternate routes. Detours and details can be found at the project website, www.75rougeriver.com.

The detour route is southbound I-75 to westbound I-96, then southbound I-275 to southbound I-75 in Monroe. Other alternate routes include I-94, M-85 (Fort Street), Jefferson Avenue, and Dix Highway.
