New Illinois Route 3 spur to open in East St. Louis


The Illinois Department of Transportation said today that a new spur off Illinois Route 3, between Interstate 70 and Riverpark Drive in East St Louis, will be opened to traffic after 10 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3.

Access is from Route 3 leading from the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge into Illinois, heading south and dead ending on Riverpark a few hundred yards east of the main entrance of the Casino Queen. (The spur is shown connecting with Riverpark at the bottom of the map below.)

The contractor on the project is Baxmeyer Construction of Waterloo.
