Weekend Road Closures on I-55 and I-70
According to MoDot, westbound and eastbound I-55 and I-70 will be tapered to one lane at Exchange Avenue in East St. Louis beginning Friday at 7:00 p.m. The lanes will be closed until Saturday, August 6th, permitting the weather. Also, these westbound and eastbound lanes may be closed off entirely for 15 minutes at a time. The lane closures are necessary to take out an overhead water line bridge that is associated with the New Mississippi River bridge. Thus, traffic will be led through the work zone via construction signing and flagging. Make sure to drive cautious and slow through this work zone and have a safe weekend.
