Road Week Ahead: April 7 – April 11

Here’s what’s on tap for Lake County commuters this week: April showers and a handful of Tri-State temporary lane closures.

Monday’s temporary lane closures on the North Tri-State Tollway:

  • Commuter alert: One southbound center lane will be closed for bridgework between O’Plaine Road and the Des Plaines River during the day, starting at 7 a.m. Morning rushers will be squeezed onto the leftmost and rightmost lanes. Sound familiar? A similar closure took place last week.
  • One northbound lane will be closed from Grand Avenue/Route 132 to Mill Creek Road during the day.

Stay up-to-date with the Lake County DOT roadwork update report and Illinois DOT construction update report.

There’s a rainy week ahead, according to the Interstate 94 weather report. Temperatures in the 50s should spur spring sprouts.
