Giant magnet to block I-355, I-88 in journey to Fermilab
LEMONT – A 50-foot-wide circular electromagnet will be transported from Lemont to the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia from Tuesday to Thursday, causing rolling overnight road blocks along the way.
Major highways affected will include northbound I-355 on Wednesday and westbound I-88 on Thursday.
Crews will remove signs and other obstacles in the roadway and replace them as soon as the caravan moves through. Portions of closed roads will be reopened as soon as possible.
