“It appears the expansion material in the roadway has worked its way up out of the roadway,” Illinois State Police Tpr. Lisa Osborne said. “It looks like a rubber-type material. I would call it similar to the roadway buckling in the summer time. IDOT is en route to repair it now.”

They’re asking all drivers are urged to use caution when traveling in the area.
