From Illinois State Police District 10:
During the early morning hours of Thursday, March 9, 2017, Interstate 74 will have a temporary road closure so that Comcast can remove overhead lines. The road closure will affect both directions of traffic and is expected to last approximately 10-20 minutes.
For the time during this small duration, ISP ask drivers to expect delays and please seek an alternate route if traveling this direction. Possible suggestions include:
-Those on I-57 wanting to go east on I-74 and those on I-74 East: take I-57 Exit 238 and travel east onto Olympian to Prospect, than take Prospect South to I-74 and re-enter I-74 East.
-Those westbound on I-74: Exit at Prospect Avenue, travel north on Prospect to Olympian Drive, take Olympian Drive West to I-57 and take I-57 South to return to I-74 West.
-Also an option, exit at Prospect and travel south to Bloomington Road, take Bloomington Road 7 miles west to Prairieview Road and re-enter I-74 West.
