The Illinois Department of Transportation is expecting thousands of motorists to travel on state highways during the 4th of July holiday, so they’re suspending all non-emergency road work, where possible.
The suspension begins at 3pm on Tuesday and will resume at Midnight July 4th. Some construction zones will have lane closures in effect, depending on the projects. IDOT is urging drivers to slow down, obey posted speed limits and drive with caution through work zones.
Work Zone speed limits are still in effect whether construction workers are present or not.
