SHARE 2 Lanes of Outbound I-90/94 Kennedy to Close This Weekend -- More Closures Ahead

Headaches are ahead for weekend drivers of the outbound I-90/94 Kennedy.

Two lanes of the outbound Kennedy will be closed this weekend due to concrete patching work, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced in a news release Thursday evening.

Outbound Lanes 1 and 2 will be shut from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, although the reversible lanes will be kept in the outbound position during that time.

The two lanes of closures will run all the way from Jackson Boulevard on the south to Kostner Avenue on the north, said IDOT spokeswoman Jae Miller.

More Kennedy closures are planned almost every Saturday between now and Sep. 14, when three lanes of inbound traffic will be shut down, according to the IDOT release.

Here is the IDOT news release explaining the Kennedy closures:
