The Illinois Department of Transportation says a full closure on Packers Avenue, the Illinois 3 Spur, between Riverpark Drive and North B Street in East St. Louis, is set Thursday, Nov. 15, weather permitting.
There will be a posted detour for Packers Avenue along North B Street and Riverpark Drive. The closure is necessary to demolish a section of the Martin Luther King approach structure that carries traffic over Packers Avenue.
The Packers Avenue closure is expected to reopen by the end of this year.
Delays are expected. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes and consider alternate forms of transportation during this closure period.
