Pavement patching on the eastbound Interstate 80 exit to northbound Center Street, in Joliet, will require a temporary ramp closure Wednesday and Thursday.

Weather permitting, the closure would occur from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both days, according to a news release from the Illinois Department of Transportation. Because of the closure’s short duration, no detour will be posted.

Motorists are advised to use Larkin Avenue or Chicago Street as alternate routes. Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through the area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and remain alert.

Updates on the effect the work might have can be found at travelmidwest.com.

IDOT has been busy in the Joliet area, frequently working on the Brandon Road bridge. The bridge across the Des Plaines River recently closed at the beginning of November.
