Pavement repairs will close North Expressway Drive — the service road along southbound I-75 — between Stickney Avenue and Lagrange Street for five days, starting this morning, the city transportation division announced.

The southbound I-75 exit to Stickney-Lagrange will be closed. A temporary truck route will be established via Manhattan Boulevard between Stickney and Phillips Avenue. The service road will reopen by 6 a.m. Monday.

Rebuilding of Sherbrooke Road between I-475 and Berdan Avenue began Monday. Sherbrooke is closed at the freeway for bridge replacement, so no additional detour route is posted. The project is scheduled for completion in early November.
