NEW LENOX, IL — Traffic will be shifted for the reconstruction of the I-80 – US 30 interchange in New Lenox starting June 3. 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.

In the new configuration, which will be in place until this fall, two lanes in each direction will be maintained on I-80 at all times, with access to and from US 30. A 45 mph speed limit will be posted and enforced through the work zone, IDOT said.
