A blue semitrailer is seen traveling north on Interstate 55.

Emergency bridge repairs on a portion of Interstate 55 in Bolingbrook required lane closures Monday, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced in a news release.

The two left lanes of northbound I-55 over Route 53 would be closed through the Monday night rush hour so the repairs could be completed. Temporary lane closures would also take place on northbound Route 53 until Monday afternoon, the release said.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through the area. Alternative routes are encouraged. 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.
