Southbound Interstate 494 down to single lane Wednesday for painting

Motorists are advised to expect delays as traffic is reduced to a single lane on southbound I-494 between I-94 and Bailey Road on July 14. The lane reduction is necessary for the removal of the temporary pavement markings and installation of permanent pavement markings.

The lane markings are anticipated to be completed by 5 a.m. on Thursday, July 15. Motorists are advised to expect major delays and avoid the area if possible.

Construction on I-494 began in mid-April as crews provide a concrete overlay, an asphalt overlay and pond and drainage improvements on the corridor.
