Stretch of Chicago freeway to get facelift

| 5/28/2002

A resurfacing project is scheduled to begin May 28 along I-55 near Chicago. Work on the $11.5 million project will be done during the overnight hours to reduce the impact to drivers.

Construction will occur on a 16-mile section of I-55 from Willow Springs Road in Countryside to IL 126 in Plainfield. Lane and ramp closures are expected between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. on weekdays and until noon on weekends. The project is scheduled to be complete by Aug. 31.
