A big construction project is expected to resume Sunday night.A 14-mile stretch of Interstate 55 between Weber Road and I-80 will get an additional lane in each direction.

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) says drivers should expect delays in both directions.

Inbound lane will close from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m., and outbound lanes will be shut down from 10 p.m. until 7 a.m.

IDOT says the projects should be completed by the end of the year.
