Roadway rehabilitation is scheduled to begin next week on Interstate 88 between the Aurora Toll Plaza and Route 59.
Illinois Tollway officials said the work is needed to keep the roadway in good repair. Work includes grinding off a thin layer of concrete pavement in both directions and removing and replacing pavement markings.
The project is scheduled to be complete this summer.
Rehabilitation work requiring lane closures will be done during overnight hours to minimize the impact to traffic. Lane reductions will be removed by 5 a.m. daily in advance of the morning rush hour. Up to 101,400 vehicles a day use this stretch of I-88.
During the week beginning Monday, removal of pavement markings will begin in the eastbound lanes. Pavement grinding work is expected to begin in late May, and once completed, new pavement markings will be placed. The same repair work is scheduled to begin in the westbound lanes in June.
The I-88 roadway repairs are part of the 15-year, $12 billion capital program, Move Illinois: The Illinois Tollway Driving the Future.
