Heads up, drivers. I-80 will be down to one lane each direction near Route 30 in New Lenox this weekend, as the Illinois Department of Transportation inspects bridges.
Weather permitting, the check of bridges carrying I-80 eastbound and westbound over U.S. Route 30, located approximately 4 miles east of Joliet, is scheduled to occur from 5:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 29.
One lane will remain open in each direction at all times.
