EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KMOV.com)—All westbound lanes of Interstate 55/70 from Illinois 203 to the Interstate 55/70/64 split will be closed this weekend.
The closure will begin Friday, August 4 at 9 p.m. After crews close the road, they will begin necessary bridge repairs on a bridge west of Illinois 203.
During the closure, a posted detour will direct traffic to southbound Interstate 255 to westbound Interstate 64 to access westbound Interstate 55 or Interstate 70.
The roadway is expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, August 7.
The lanes were originally scheduled to be closed the weekend of July 21 for the repairs but, due to the extreme heat, the work was delayed.
