SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — With thousands of motorists expected to travel on state roadways over the Independence Day holiday week, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced that non-emergency roadwork will be suspended where possible July 3-7 to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow.

IDOT is also providing advance notice of lane closures that will be in place for the holiday week to aid motorists’ travel plans and boost safety.

“With the anticipated increase in travel for Independence Day, our goal is to improve traffic flow on Illinois roadways by suspending all non-emergency road work, wherever possible, in advance of the most traveled summer holiday,” said Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann L. Schneider. “To reduce potential roadway congestion and improve safety, we are also providing a list of lane closures on our website, with a breakdown by county, to help motorists plan their trips.”

IDOT has suspended all non-emergency roadwork for the holiday week and opened up all lanes where possible through midnight Sunday, July 7. Some construction zones will have lane closures in effect, depending on the projects.

IDOT is urging motorists to slow down, obey posted speed limits and drive with caution through work zones. Holiday travelers are reminded that work zone speed limits are still in effect wherever they are posted, even where no construction workers are present.
