The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that daily lane closures will take place on Cicero Avenue (Illinois 50/83) between 147th Street and 131st Street, in Crestwood, Alsip & Midlothian beginning Monday, August 8.
The closures are necessary for a resurfacing project along Cicero Avenue. In order to complete the work, Cicero Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction between 147th Street and 131st Street during construction activities. The project is expected to be completed in Fall 2016. Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are
urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits
and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
