The Indiana Department of Transportation is alerting drivers of two upcoming closures on I-65 in Lake County.

This Friday, October 20, crews will be setting beams at the I-65 bridge structure over Wirtz Ditch (approximately MM 245, two miles south of US-231) bridge structure during daytime hours. Between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., there will be a 10-minute rolling closure on I-65 southbound while equipment is repositioned.

In addition, the evening of October 23, crews will be performing repair work and the 109th Avenue ramp to I-65 northbound in Crown Point will be completely closed between the hours of 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. the following morning (or earlier if work is completed). During this time, westbound 109th Avenue traffic should proceed to Broadway and then north to US-30. Eastbound 109th Avenue traffic should proceed to Colorado and then travel north to US-30. The ramp to southbound I-65 will remain open.

Motorists are urged to pay close attention to the signs in the work zone, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

   Full Closure of Cal Sag Bridge in Crestwood for Steel Repairs

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that Cicero Avenue (IL-50/83) over the Cal Sag Channel will be fully closed between 127th Street and 135th Street, in Crestwood, for a bridge repair project, beginning, weather permitting, Monday, Oct. 16. The repairs also will require a closure on the Illinois Tollway’s exit ramp from the southbound Tri-State Tollway (I-294) to southbound Cicero Avenue.

 In order to complete the work, the structure that carries Cicero Avenue over the Cal Sag Channel will be fully closed until mid-December 2017. A posted detour will direct southbound Cicero Avenue traffic to go west on 127th Street and southeast on Cal Sag Road to meet back with Cicero Avenue. Northbound Cicero Avenue traffic will take the reverse route.

 The Tollway’s exit ramp from southbound I-294 to southbound Cicero Avenue also will be closed. Southbound I-294 traffic should take the Cicero Avenue/127th Street exit ramp and keep right to access 127th Street and northbound Cicero Avenue.

 The scope of the project consists of structural steel repairs on the bridge that carries IL-50/83 over the Cal Sag Channel. The repairs will improve safety and extend the lifespan of the bridge.

 Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

   St. Clair County: Lane Closure For EB I-64 Ramp To I-255

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced today that the eastbound I-64 ramp to I-255 will be reduced to one lane beginning Thursday, Oct. 5.

Beginning at 9 a.m., the ramp lanes from eastbound I-64 to I-255 will be reduced to one lane. This lane closure is necessary to paint the bridge carrying 81st Street traffic over I-64. This work is expected to be completed by the end of October, weather permitting.

In addition to the above closure, more closures are planned for the eastbound lanes and westbound lanes of I-64 east of the I-255 interchange. More details of these closures will be announced as they get closer.

Delays are expected. Motorists are urged to reduce speed, obey all traffic control signage, allow extra time and use caution while driving through and near the work zone.

   Eastbound I-694 traffic moved this weekend to new pavement between Arden Hills and Vadnais Heights

Monday, September 25, morning commuters on eastbound I-694 will find themselves traveling on two new lanes of the interstate between Lexington Avenue in Arden Hills and I-35E in Little Canada. Traffic was switched onto the two new left lanes of pavement through the area late Friday night, Sept. 22. The concrete median barrier dividing the eastbound lanes has also been removed. The barrier had divided the lanes into an inside through lane with no exits and an outside lane that allowed traffic to exit the eastbound interstate.

Although traffic has been switched to the newly built inside lanes of eastbound I-694, the roadway will remain two lanes until early November. The ramp from Rice Street to westbound I-694 along with the ramps between Victoria Street and the eastbound interstate remain closed. The ramp from eastbound Highway 10 to eastbound I-694 also remains closed until later this month. 

The second and final year of construction to add a third general purpose lane in each direction of I-694 began in April and focused on the eastbound lanes of the interstate. Last year’s work rebuilt and added a third lane in the westbound direction of the interstate.

In addition to rebuilding the interstate, the project also included reconstructing the interstate ramps at Lexington Avenue, Victoria Street and Rice Street along with improving storm water drainage throughout the project area.

When complete in November of 2017, the project will improve driver safety and accessibility, increase capacity to lessen congestion and provide smoother road surfaces. In addition, the new roadway will enhance the movement of freight and support economic development.

For more information about the Enhance 694 project and informative videos about the project, please visit www.enhance694.com. You can also sign up for email alerts throughout the work.

   Southbound I-75 Detroit To Downriver

COUNTY:
Wayne
COMMUNITIES AFFECTED:
Detroit, Melvindale, River Rouge, Lincoln Park, Allen Park, Taylor, Southgate, and Brownstown Township

START DATE:
Weekend of Feb. 4, 2017

ESTIMATED END DATE:
Late 2018

PROJECT DETAILS:
Southbound I-75 will be closed from Detroit to Downriver in less than three weeks. This closure is part of the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) approximately $200 million investment in major repairs over a two-year period.

The detour begins at I-96 in Detroit to Northline Road in 2017; during 2018, the detour will be from I-96 to Sibley Road. Only southbound I-75 will be closed during the two-year period while northbound I-75 will remain open at all times.

The project includes:

  • Removing and replacing all concrete on the I-75 Rouge River bridge, the largest concrete surface in Michigan (approximately 20 football fields).
  • Replacing concrete on the I-75 bridge at Fort Street, south of Springwells Road.
  • Removing the Goddard Street bridge over I-75 and replacing it with two smaller bridges.
  • Repairing 13 other bridges along I-75 through the Downriver communities.
  • Adding intelligent transportation system (ITS) equipment. ITS includes a combination of electronic, telecommunication and information technology MDOT uses to improve safety and travel times on the transportation system.

The decision to close one direction of I-75 is based on multiple factors, including:

  • Speed: Rebuilding one side of the bridge at a time without traffic present will result in the project being completed in the shortest amount of time.
  • Cost: The shorter project duration resulting from rebuilding one side of bridge at a time will result in the lowest overall project cost.
  • Safety: If the bridge was constructed in sections with both directions of traffic sharing one side, there wouldn't be adequate room for emergency crews to respond to incidents on the bridge.
  • Mobility: Maintaining limited two-way traffic on one side of freeway would cause back-ups in both directions, as opposed to one direction. 
  • Quality: Rebuilding one side of the bridge at a time will allow construction to proceed without interruption since there will be no need to maintain traffic. The decreased vibrations from nearby traffic will result in the best quality workmanship.
  • Duration: By closing southbound I-75, construction activity will move faster since not as much time and effort will be needed to shift traffic.

Motorists will see signs announcing the closure along I-75 to allow residents, businesses, and drivers plenty of time to prepare alternate routes. Detours and details can be found at the project website, www.75rougeriver.com.

The detour route is southbound I-75 to westbound I-96, then southbound I-275 to southbound I-75 in Monroe. Other alternate routes include I-94, M-85 (Fort Street), Jefferson Avenue, and Dix Highway.
