HALSTED STREET ENTRANCE & EXIT RAMPS SCHEDULED TO CLOSE
FOR NORTHBOUND I-57 MOTORISTS ON MONDAY, APRIL 14th

SCHAUMBURG,IL -- The Illinois Department of Transportation today announced the scheduled closure of two ramps on I-57 beginning Monday morning, April 14, as part of the ongoing rehabilitation work underway on the northbound lanes of the expressway.

Weather permitting, the Halsted Street entrance and exit ramps will be closed to northbound traffic for approximately four weeks. Both existing ramps will be torn out and undergo complete reconstruction.

In addition to these new temporary closures, the 127th Street exit ramp on northbound

I-57 remains closed due to construction through the end of October.

Further ramp closures and openings for northbound I-57 motorists will continue through the summer as pavement patching, bridge deck reconstruction and road resurfacing work is completed throughout the 12 mile stretch of I-57 between I-80 and Halsted Street.

While construction is underway, motorists are advised to anticipate delays, adjust their travel routes as necessary, and to slow down and exercise caution when traveling through the I-57 construction zone.
