   Solar Eclipse 2017

On Aug. 21, Illinois — and southern Illinois in particular — will be home to some of the best solar eclipse viewing in the country.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon travels between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow on the Earth’s surface. An approximately 75-mile area in southern Illinois centered on Carbondale will be treated to a full eclipse — when the moon completely blocks the sun for nearly three minutes. The rest of the state will see a partial eclipse of 85 percent to 90 percent coverage.

Latest Updates

How IDOT is preparing

The Illinois Department of Transportation has been coordinating with other agencies on the state and local levels throughout the spring and summer to make sure the eclipse weekend and viewing events run as smoothly as possible.

IDOT staff will be ready and available if they are needed to assist with traffic detours, communicating travel information and more.

Expect congestion

Crowds of 100,000 to 200,000 are expected to come to the prime viewing areas in southern Illinois. Among the heaviest traveled corridors are anticipated to be U.S. 51 and Illinois 13 corridors, plus Interstate 57. Any lane closures on state projects will be lifted throughout the weekend and the day after the eclipse.

Travel Tips

Solar Eclipse Driving Tips

Viewing Tips

As always, you should never look directly at the sun, especially during an eclipse. To safely view the eclipse, consider:

  • Eclipse glasses:

    These special shades are similar to 3D glasses but are certified eclipse-safe for direct viewing. Regular sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe to view the eclipse.
  • Solar filters:

    If you want to use a telescope, binoculars or camera, do not use them unprotected even if you have safe eclipse glasses. Consult the manufacturer for a proper filter to attach to your device.
  • Pinhole viewer:

    This is a simple, inexpensive way to indirectly view the eclipse. Just take two sheets of white paper (card stock is better) and poke a hole in the middle of one sheet. With your back to the sun, hold the sheet with the hole over the other sheet and adjust them until you see a dot of light. That’s the sun! As the moon travels across the sun, a crescent will appear.

   All Lanes Will Be Closed on Eastbound I-55/70 in St. Clair County
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that a full closure on eastbound I-55/70 from the I-55/70/64 interchange in East St. Louis to Interstate 255 near Collinsville is scheduled to begin on Friday, August 18, weather permitting. 
 
Starting at 9 p.m. Friday, eastbound I-55/70 will be closed from the I-55/70/64 interchange to I-255.  A posted detour will direct traffic to take eastbound I-64 to northbound I-255 to access eastbound I-55/70.  Eastbound I-55/70 traffic will not be able to travel east of the I-55/70/64 interchange.  The closure is necessary to make bridge repairs on a bridge west of IL-203, to perform pavement repairs on I-55/70 west of I-255, and to paint two bridges west of I-255.
 
In addition to the above closure, the right lane of eastbound I-55/70 will be restricted from Black Lane to I-255 near Collinsville from 9 p.m. Thursday night and continuing through Friday.  This lane restriction is necessary to prepare for the above closure.
 
The interstate is expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, August 21.
 
Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes and anticipate some longer travel times.
 
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.
 
Updates on the impacts to traffic are available at http://stl-traffic.org.

   I-394 East Ramp to I-94 East in Minneapolis

The ramp from I-394 east to I-94 east in Minneapolis will close for two weeks early morning on Monday Aug. 14.

A previous release incorrectly announced the closing date for Tuesday morning.

Crews will start closing the ramp late Sunday, Aug. 13. Motorists will see the ramp closed in time for rush hour Monday, Aug. 14.

Crews will begin reopening the ramp late Aug. 27 in time for rush hour Aug, 28.

The detour is MN-100 south to MN-62 east to I-35W north.

Motorists should plan their routes in advance and give themselves plenty of time to reach their destinations.

The I-394 east ramp to I-94 east leads through the Lowry Hill Tunnel. That has been the only lane open in the eastbound tunnel since Aug. 4.

The closure is so crews can make improvements as part of the I-94 Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center project.

Please see the project web page for more information including detour maps. http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/i94brooklyncntr/

   Lane Closures Will Be Encountered on Eastbound I-55/70 in Madison County
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that lane closures will be encountered on eastbound I-55/70 at I-255 near Collinsville.  The lane closures are necessary to paint two bridges carrying I-255 traffic over I-55/70 and to perform pavement repairs.  Two lanes will remain open during weekdays, as well as the ramp to I-255.  This work will begin on Monday, August 14 and is expected to be completed by August 25, weather permitting. 
 
The contractor on this project is Venus Painting Company of Valparaiso, Indiana.

   Mackinac Bridge to be Closed to Public Traffic During Annual Bridge Walk

Citing safety and security recommendations by the Michigan State Police (MSP) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA) will close the bridge to most vehicle traffic during the 2017 Annual Bridge Walk on Labor Day.

Unlike in prior years, only buses used to transport walkers to the starting point for the walk and emergency services vehicles will be allowed on the bridge during the event. All other vehicle traffic will be stopped from 6:30 a.m. to noon while event participants are on the bridge.

“This was not a decision the Mackinac Bridge Authority makes lightly. We understand this change will be an inconvenience to our customers traveling Labor Day morning,” said MBA Chairman William Gnodtke. “Our board felt this choice strikes the best balance of keeping this 60-year tradition going for the tens of thousands of visitors who walk the bridge each year and keeping them safe.”

“While there are no known threats to this annual tradition, recent terrorist-related attacks carried out around the globe serve as a reminder to remain alert and vigilant,” stated Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue, director of MSP and state director of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. “Since 9/11, Michigan has made great strides enhancing the state’s homeland security framework to protect critical infrastructure, key resources and our residents.”

Each year, between 30,000 and 60,000 people from several states and countries come to the Mackinac Bridge for the Annual Bridge Walk, which has taken place since 1958, the year after the bridge opened to traffic.
Roughly 9,000 vehicles cross the bridge during the event hours, with many of them carrying participants in the walk. As before, the two eastern lanes of the bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic before the walk starts. The western two lanes will be open to the buses transporting walkers between Mackinaw City and St. Ignace, as well as emergency vehicles.  The event will begin at 6:40 a.m. with the start of the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness Jog, followed by a greeting from Gov. Rick Snyder at 6:55 a.m. Walkers will begin across the bridge at 7 a.m.

No walkers will be permitted to begin the walk after 10 a.m., as it takes roughly one-and-a-half hours to complete the crossing. Buses will begin picking up any remaining walkers on the bridge at 11:30 a.m. to ensure the bridge is clear and can reopen to traffic promptly at noon.

Buses will again shuttle participants between Mackinaw City and St. Ignace for the start of the walk, and then back to St. Ignace if needed, starting at 4:30 a.m. The MBA plans to secure additional buses to make sure all
participants can get to the starting area prior to 10 a.m.

Northbound I-75 traffic will be stopped at Exit 337 on the south end of the bridge; southbound US-2 and I-75 traffic will be stopped at Exit 344 on the north side.

The MBA intends to alert motorists of this change through media releases, postings on the MBA website (www.mackinacbridge.org), messages on the Michigan Department of Transportation’s (MDOT) dynamic message sign system, the Mi Drive travel information website (www.michigan.gov/drive), and notifications to customers at the bridge. The MBA will work with MSP to help inform the public and direct traffic the day of the event.

   Traffic Changes Coming Friday to I-94 Near Lowry Tunnel

Motorists driving on Interstate 94 in Minneapolis through the Lowry Hill Tunnel will see lane changes this week.

In preparation for the changes, I-94 east will close at the tunnel from midnight until 5 a.m. Friday, Aug. 4 and traffic will take the Hennepin/Lyndale exit. Interstate 394 east to I-94 east through the tunnel remains open during this tunnel closure.

Early Friday morning, traffic will shift to the westbound side of the tunnel. Drivers will see two lanes in each direction with a concrete barrier in the middle.

The speed limit is 40 mph. Trucks and buses weighing more than 9,000 pounds are prohibited.

Traffic from I-394 east to I-94 east will continue to be able to use the eastbound tunnel until Aug. 14. Then the ramp from I-394 to I-94 east will close until Aug. 28 for improvements.

The following ramps will be closed during this stage:

  • I-35W north to I-94 west
  • Highway 55 to I-94 east
  • Fourth Avenue to I-94 west
  • I-94 east to I-35W south

This final stage is expected to be in place until mid-September while crews work on bridges near the Lowry Hill Tunnel and make repairs inside the tunnel.

Please see the project web page for more information including detour maps. http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/i94brooklyncntr/

   Work along I-41 in Menomonee Falls

Full ramp closures scheduled this summer

Beginning the week of June 26, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will begin work on I-41/US 45 near Main St. in the village of Menomonee Falls, Waukesha County.

The project centers around replacing a small bridge on both the I-41/US 45 southbound entrance ramp and on the I-41/US 45 mainline. Associated work will involve replacement of storm sewer, concrete barrier and beam guard, along with new lighting, signing and pavement marking.

WisDOT is taking great steps to minimize traffic impacts throughout the project. No lane closures will be scheduled during peak times and much of the work will take place in the evening hours. Later this summer, full ramp closures will be required. Detour routes will be provided during these closures.

The contractor Zenith Tech, Inc. plans on completing the $3.4 million project in mid-2018, with work ceasing during winter months. All ramps and lane closures will be reopened during winter shutdown with additional ramp closures scheduled for spring 2018.

Please note that the schedule of work is weather dependent and subject to change.

-I-65 Mainline – On or after June 1, two lanes of traffic in each direction will be shifted toward the existing median. Initial work will include removing signage and guardrail, installing erosion control measures and patching existing pavement. After that, a new outside shoulder will be constructed and the existing lanes will be restriped to provide three lanes on northbound and southbound I-65. During peak hours, two lanes will be maintained in each direction. Intermittent single lane closures will occur at night.

-93rd Avenue – On or after July 15, the 93rd Avenue overpass will be closed for resurfacing. That closure is expected to last four to six weeks. The posted detour will follow 101st Avenue.

-113th Avenue – Upon completion of the work at 93rd Avenue, the 113th Avenue overpass will be closed for resurfacing. That closure is expected to last four to six weeks. The posted detour will follow 109th Avenue.

I-65 just south of IN-2 to US-231

-I-65 Mainline – On or after June 1, there will be intermittent, overnight single lane closures while a portion of the outside shoulder is reconstructed. This is expected to last approximately one week. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction during peak hours.

-Following the outside shoulder reconstruction, mainline I-65 traffic will be shifted toward the outline shoulder while drainage installation and road construction occurs in the median. During peak hours, two lanes will be maintained in each direction. Intermittent single lane closures will occur at night.

Kankakee River Bridges

-On or after June 1, a portion of the outside lane and shoulder will be resurfaced. During peak hours, two lanes of southbound traffic will be maintained at all times. Intermittent single lane closures will occur at night.

   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.
