Metro East: IDOT announces I-255 lane restrictions, ramp closure at I-55/70 on Sept. 13

The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that lane restrictions will be encountered Tuesday, Sept. 13, on the exit ramp (Exit 25A) from northbound Interstate 255 to northbound I-55/70 in Collinsville.

Weather permitting, between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13, the exit ramp (Exit 25A) from northbound I-255 to northbound I-55/70 will be closed. Travelers can utilize the Horseshoe Lake Road interchange (Exit 26) and southbound Interstate 255 to circumvent the ramp closure.

These restrictions are needed to perform pavement patching on the ramp. IDOT District 8 Operations crews will make the needed improvements. Full access will be restored as soon as possible.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
