Jane Addams bridge work to close Mannheim lanes overnight

(ROSEMONT) Bridge construction on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway will cause lane closures Wednesday night on Mannheim Road in northwest suburban Rosemont.

One lane in each direction will be closed after 7 p.m. on Mannheim under Interstate 90 as work begins to rebuild the bridge carrying the interstate over local roads, according to a statement from the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Intermittent full closures – which will last no longer than 15 minutes each – will begin after 10 p.m. to allow for the removal of bridge beams, IDOT said. All lanes are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Thursday ahead of the morning commute.

Similar closures are scheduled to begin on Touhy Avenue in Rosemont and Higgins Road in Des Plaines the week of April 13, according to IDOT. The daily overnight closures will be in effect throughout the week in addition to daytime lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
