CRESTWOOD, Ill. (WLS) -- The southbound Tri-State Tollway will be reduced to three lanes between West 131st Street and the Midlothian Turnpike starting this week.

Workers will also repair the pavement on the ramp from the southbound Tri-State/westbound I-80 to Route 394 in South Holland an along the shoulder in early May.

Construction is expected to finish at the end of May. Some drivers may experience delays.

This work is part of the Illinois Tollway's 15-year, $12 billion improvement plan.
