Two road resurfacing projects beginning this month are expected to jam some roads in the south suburbs through the fall.

The Illinois Department of Transportation is scheduled to begin a resurfacing project and the installation of a traffic signal at Sibley and Wallace Street on Monday on Sibley Boulevard in Harvey.

The milling and resurfacing work will cause daytime lane closures. The project is scheduled for completion by Oct. 31.

Torrence Avenue in Lansing and Calumet City also is scheduled for resurfacing. That IDOT project is scheduled to begin July 15 between Sibley Boulevard to north of Interstate 80.

The work will consist of pavement patching, milling and resurfacing and may require temporary lane closures.

The Torrence Avenue work is expected to be complete by Nov. 1.

IDOT is encouraging drivers traveling through both work zones to heed signs, obey posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

Updates on impacts to traffic caused by the projects will be available at
