I-55 pavement repair underway

Pavement repairs are starting this week on Interstate 55 between Braidwood and Gardner, the Illinois Department of Transportation said.

The work requires lane closures and is part of a larger resurfacing and bridge repair project on I-55, which is expected to be completed in fall 2021.

Lanes will be closed south of the Reed Road interchange (exit 233) in Braidwood to Gardner.

The project includes patching, resurfacing of shoulders, and resurfacing of the ramps at the Gardner interchange (exit 227).
