HULL, Ill. — Traffic on Interstate 72 west of the Interstate 172 interchange will be reduced to one lane in each direction starting next week for roadwork.

The Illinois Department of Transportation said work includes removing sections of pavement expansion joins, placing reinforcement and concrete patching. 

Work is expected to be finished by early July. 

Drivers should expect delays during construction.

The project is being funded by the Rebuild Illinois capital program.
