The Illinois Department of Transportation announced on Wednesday all lanes that have been closed for construction will reopen, where possible, for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend to minimize travel disruption.

Non-emergency closures will be suspended from 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 24, to 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 28. Exceptions to these openings include several areas in our listening area.

Interstate 55 between Caton Farm Road and Illinois 126 will continue to have reduced lanes, as will Sioux Drive in Channahon, Weber Road in Romeoville, and U.S. Route 6 east of Morris. Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through these areas.

To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered.
