SCHAUMBURG - Major improvements get underway Tuesday morning, May 27th on the 13.4 mile stretch of I-57 that runs through Will County, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced today.

Weather permitting, pavement patching begins at 9:00 am on the southern section of the project and is expected to last through early June. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction for 6-1/2 miles starting near Monee and continuing south through Peotone. Once this work is completed, crews will shift to the northern section of the project beginning at the northern border of Will County and continuing south 6-1/2 miles to Monee.

While patching is underway, one lane of traffic will remain open in each direction throughout the project. This first phase of construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of June. Motorists are advised to anticipate delays and plan accordingly.

The $10 million project will upgrade expressway conditions through several stages of construction including: concrete pavement patching, road resurfacing, guard rail improvements and storm sewer improvements. It spans from the northern border of Will County through University Park, Monee, and Peotone to the Kankakee County Line.

Work is scheduled to continue through mid-October. The contractor is "D" Construction of Coal City.
