Northbound and southbound lanes of Interstate 55 are closed between US-6 and Interstate 80 in Channahon due to flooding, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced Friday.

IDOT says the closure is anticipated to last one day or more and will be lifted as soon as the flooding recedes.

Motorists traveling along southbound I-55 will be directed to exit onto eastbound Interstate 80, where they should take the exit to southbound Hollywood Road. Traffic should then turn right onto US-6 and continue to I-55.

Motorists traveling along northbound I-55 will be directed to exit onto US-6, where they should turn right on eastbound US-6, to turn left onto northbound Hollywood Rd, and take the entrance on the left to westbound I-80 and continue to I-55.

IDOT advises motorists to find details on other construction projects in IDOT's District 1 at www.dot.state.il.us. Updates on the impacts to traffic are available at www.travelmidwest.com.
