EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) – The Illinois State Police Department has been working to improve safety along a stretch of Interstate 55 that’s been the scene of several serious crashes in recent months.

Troopers have been monitoring the construction zone on the stretch of interstate between Edwardsville and Hamel. The troopers are looking for speeders and using a photo van to take pictures of speeding cars and then sending tickets in the mail.

Troopers said they write about 20 tickets a day to drivers in the construction zone.
