The Illinois Department of Transportation announced lane restrictions on Interstate 64 this week.

Both eastbound and westbound lanes of I-64 at Summerfield Road near New Baden will be restricted to one lane from Monday, May 14 through Friday, May 18, weather permitting. The restrictions will be in place during daytime hours to install sensors in the pavement.

Delays are expected to result from the restrictions, and motorists are urged to reduce speed, obey traffic control signage, allow for extra time and use caution while driving through construction areas.
