Temporary nightly lane closures are scheduled starting Monday to complete resurfacing work on the Bishop Ford Freeway on the Far South Side.

The closures will affect traffic in both directions on Interstate 94 between Interstate 57 and Martin Luther King Drive, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through the area.

The project, which was largely completed in 2016, includes resurfacing, pavement patching and the replacement of pavement markings. Resurfacing is expected to be completed this spring, IDOT said.
