I-57 Resurfacing Project in Will County Enters Stage II on June 17,
Night Work Planned for Next Four Months


SCHAUMBURG-- On the night of June 17, the ongoing project to resurface a 13-mile section of I-57 through Will County will begin Stage II construction-four months of night work.

For the past three weeks, work has focused on concrete pavement patching and has reduced traffic to one lane in each direction from Steger Road to the Kankakee County Line. The patch work is now complete and all lanes are to be open by Tuesday morning.

Beginning Tuesday night, and continuing into October, the milling and resurfacing operations will be underway. Motorists can expect to encounter nightly lane closures on sections of I-57 in both directions throughout the project limits.

The lane closures will occur during the overnight period to limit the impact of construction on traffic. Lanes can be closed beginning at 8:00 PM weekdays and are to re-open to traffic by 5:00 AM the next morning. On weekends, the lane closures can remain in place as late as 9:00 AM.

The $10.5 million project is scheduled for completion by October 10.
