COLLINSVILLE, Ill. ( – Traffic is flowing once again in the eastbound lanes of I-55/70 from Fairmont City to Troy.

The closure started Friday night from Illinois 111 U.S. 40 and is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Friday. It was necessary for placing a new bituminous surface treatment on the roadway.

Traffic started making its way through the area again before 5 a.m. Monday, Sept. 16, but IDOT then closed two eastbound lanes of the interstate in Fairmont City.
