EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KMOV.com) – On Tuesday, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced that both westbound Interstate 64 and eastbound Interstate 55/70 will be reduced to one lane beginning Friday.
The closures will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, weather permitting. Officials said the closures are necessary so crews can install a storm sewer pipe across the roadway. During the work, drivers can expect delays and are urged to use alternate routes.
The work is expected to be completed by Sunday, July 15th.
