Overnight Resurfacing of I-55 Begins May 1,
Project Expected to Last Only One Month
SCHAUMBURG,IL -- A project to resurface a section of
I-55 in west suburban Cook County will get under way beginning
Thursday night, May 1.
The work being done from County Line Road to Willow Springs Road
is a small part of a larger project to improve I-55 that began last
year. It was postponed until this spring because it would have
conflicted with the then ongoing project to reconstruct the
interchange of I-55 at I-294.
To limit the impact to motorists, the resurfacing project will be
done during the overnight period. Lanes closures will begin no
earlier than 8:00 PM. Lanes will re-open by 5:00 AM on weekdays and
by 12 noon on weekends.
In addition, the ramps at County Line Road will be resurfaced.
When a ramp is closed on a given night, motorists will be directed
to use the remaining ramps at the interchange as the detour route.
The project is scheduled for completion in early June, weather
