A long stretch of Interstate 255 in Metro East will undergo pavement overhaul, the Illinois Department of Transportation says..
The work will take place on I-255 between Collinsville Road and the Mississippi River in Madison and St. Clair counties. IDOT says lanes will be restricted in both directions to complete pavement repairs beginning Monday, May 15, weather permitting.
These repairs will be completed between the following hours:
· On Saturdays between 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., two of three lanes will be restricted in both directions; one lane will remain open at all times between these hours.
· From Sunday evenings through Friday mornings between 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., two of three lanes will be restricted in both directions. One lane will remain open at all times between these hours.
Repairs are expected to be completed by mid-summer of 2017.
Motorists are urged to use caution, obey all warning signs and allow extra time when travelling through the work zone.
