Overnight lane closures expected through January on I-74

CHAMPAIGN — Overnight closures on Interstate 74 through Champaign and Urbana are expected to continue until the end of this month.

Workers are replacing sign trusses at nine locations from just west of the Prospect Avenue exit to U.S. 45. Lane closures for the $523,585 project will be restricted to between 9 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.

Full closures of the interstate may occur for 15 minutes at a time between midnight and 4 a.m. Kensil Garnett, a project implementation engineer for the Illinois Department of Transportation, said the next big replacement will be on Sunday evening.
