The Illinois Department of Transportation announces today that weather permitting, construction on I-80 near the I-88 and Illinois 5/92 interchange (exits 4A-B) in East Moline will begin on Monday, Sept. 20. The work will be from 0.8 mile north to 1 mile south of the interchange.
Complete Asphalt Service Co. of Pittsfield is the contractor of the $96,879 project, which will route, clean, and seal the centerline and shoulder joints of I-80. Work will also include pavement striping upon completing the sealing. The work will require temporary daytime lane closures and is expected to be completed in approximately two weeks.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area and be prepared for slow and stopped traffic. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
