The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced that East Third Road under Interstate 80 in La Salle will be closed starting tomorrow (Friday) night at 7.
The closure is necessary to remove a portion of the bridge that carries westbound I-80 over the road. Work is expected to last until early Monday morning. Signs, message boards and flaggers will be in place to direct motorists.
The work is part of a larger project to repair or replace the I-80 bridges over the Little Vermillion River, East Third Road and Racuglia Drive.
