Ramp on I-80, Joliet to be temporarily closed

JOLIET – A ramp carrying traffic from eastbound Interstate 80 to northbound Center Street in joliet will be closed Tuesday, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.

The temporary closure will start at 7 a.m. Tuesday so workers can conduct pavement patching repairs, IDOT officials said in a news release. The ramp from eastbound I-80 to northbound Center Street will be fully closed and slated to re-open at 3 p.m.

Motorists should take Larkin Avenue or Chicago Street as alternate routes to access Center Street.

“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,” IDOT officials said.
