(KMOV.com) – All westbound lanes of Interstate 55/70 are now open to traffic ahead of schedule.
IDOT closed the westbound lanes of the interstate from Route 203 to the split at Interstate 64 as they repaved the lanes and worked on the approach to the new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge.
Originally, IDOT expected the lanes to remain closed until Monday morning. However, the project finished ahead of schedule.
IDOT warns drivers to be aware that lanes have changed some, so take it slow when driving through the newly finished section of road.
