A lane of the inbound Bishop Ford Freeway was shut down for emergency repairs Wednesday morning on the Far South Side.

The left lane of westbound Interstate 94 was closed about 10:15 a.m. at southbound Stony Island Avenue near 103rd Street, according to a statement from the Illinois Department of Transportation.

The closure was needed in order to perform “emergency repairs to a drainage structure,” IDOT said. The lane was back open by 12:30 p.m.
