According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, traffic will be shifted to the right on the eastbound lanes between Gougar and Francis roads during the overnight hours on Monday, weather permitting.

The westbound lanes also will be shifted to the right during the overnight hours either Tuesday or Wednesday. IDOT said one lane will be closed between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on the nights when the lanes are being shifted.
