EAST PEORIA (WEEK) — Nightime bridge beam installation at the Pinecrest overpass over Interstate 74 begins October 5.

The installation will require lane closures in one or both directions of I-74 between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. for around three weeks, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Full closures of the interstate will take place from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. with traffic detouring using the exit and entrance ramps at Pinecrest. The ramps from Pinecrest to eastbound I-74 and from westbound I-74 to Pinecrest will remain closed when not being used as detours.

IDOT says motorists can expect delays and should allow for extra time for trips through the area.

Use of alternative routes should be considered, when feasible.
