The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that northbound and southbound traffic on Morton Avenue in Morton will be shifted to the southbound lanes between Ashland Street and Clark StreetWednesday, May 14, weather permitting.

The traffic shift will allow for the reconstruction of the northbound lanes of Morton Avenue. A minimum of one lane in each direction and access to and from I-74 will remain open throughout construction. Traffic will remain in this revised pattern until November.

AlsoMay 14, the loop ramp taking eastbound I-74 traffic to northbound Morton Avenue will permanently close. Eastbound I-74 traffic will access northbound Morton Avenue by making a left turn from the ramp on the west side of Morton Avenue.

The overall project is the complete reconstruction of I-74 from Pleasant Hill Road to Morton Avenue in Tazewell County.

Please slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work zones.
