Overnight closures planned for I-74 eastbound

Interstate 74 eastbound near Mahomet will be closed overnight Tuesday and Wednesday nights for bridge work.

The highway will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. both nights so the final beams can be installed on the bridge carrying Lake of the Woods Road over I-74, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Traffic will be detoured using Illinois 47 and Prairieview Road and U.S. 150, the department said.

The westbound lanes of I-74 may be reduced to one lane intermittently during the work.

The overall bridge project is scheduled to be completed by Aug. 14.
