Drivers bracing for a rough ride through construction on the Eisenhower Expressway have enjoyed a repreieve from delays.

However, traffic could soon be slowing down as construction picks up.

The project affects 27 miles of the expressway, and the first significant delays could come Tuesday.

Rain on Sunday forestalled overnight work on the roadway, and no work was done on Friday because it was a holiday.

Drivers who rely on the Eisenhower should budget extra travel time, seek an alternate route or take public transportation.
