Illinois Department of Transportation
IDOT to suspend much roadwork during holiday weekend

Expected heavy traffic throughout Illinois this Memorial Day weekend has prompted the state's transportation department to stop doing any non-emergency roadwork for a few days. In a news release, the department says roadwork will be suspended wherever possible from 3 p.m. Friday through Monday night. But the department says that while it will open lanes wherever possible to reduce traffic congestion, there still will be plenty of roads closed in work zones around the state. As a result, the department advises motorists to be on the lookout for lane closures and obey work zone speed limits wherever they're posted. Copyright 2015 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
