Each day at 1 a.m., full closures of up to 15 minutes at a time are set for on the inbound Kennedy near Van Buren Street.

The left lane of the inbound Dan Ryan Expressway also will be closed both nights between 18th and Van Buren streets.

All lanes will reopen by 9 a.m. Sunday and 5 a.m. Monday.

At 10 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, the inbound Dan Ryan will be reduced to one lane between 18th Street and Van Buren Street, with 15-minute full inbound traffic stops beginning at 1 a.m., according to IDOT.
