Hey, guess what started today? More construction! Yay. This time things will be slow along Route 72 (E. Roosevelt - Stillman Valley/E. Chicago - Davis Junction) from Stillman Valley to I-39. WREX is the bearer of bad news, so don't shoot the messenger.

Don't forget to follow the construction zone laws like using your phone in construction zones, obeying posted speed limits, and be cautious of working crews.
