IDOT unsure about repairing broken lights on I-255

(KMOV) – Lights have been out for some time on Monday night on parts of Interstate 255 near I-64, and drivers have to rely on their headlights to make their way through interchanges.

It has been awhile since the I-64 and I-255 Interchange in Caseyville has been fully lit, but the Illinois Department of Transportation says it’s premature to promise repairs.

IDOT blames copper thieves, and a spokesman in Springfield, Ill. says there’s no guarantee lights will be replaced.
