Roadwork to repair potholes on Cicero

CHICAGO Crews will be resurfacing Cicero Avenue at Interstate 55. It suffered a lot of damage during our harsh winter.

So, if the weather allows, work will begin on Monday evening to resurface the street. It should continue for about 10 nights, from 8 p.m. until 5 the next morning.

Drivers can expect some lane closures and exit ramps from I-55 may be closed at times. But state officials say it will be worth the inconvenience.

"It will be safer, it will be smoother, and we will hope that we can continue work on Cicero Avenue with additional upgrades in the coming year or two," said Milton Sees , Secretary Illinois Dept. of Transportation.

When the exit ramps are closed, drivers should use Pulaski Road or Central Avenue.
