A roof cave-in at a business in Mount Prospect leads to the closing of one lane in each direction on Northwest Highway.

The action was taken because it's feared the roof could collapse completely.

Employees at Tri-State Electronic Corporation first noticed the problem late Tuesday morning. No one was hurt.

Investigators hope the roof can be shored up enough to allow the highway lanes to reopen by Thursday.
