The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that lane restrictions on northbound Interstate 55/70 will be encountered daily from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Nov. 21, through Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Weather permitting, the right lane will be closed on northbound I-55/70 over Beltline Road and Keebler Avenue in Collinsville. These restrictions are needed to perform bridge deck patching on the bridges carrying northbound I-55/70 over Beltline Road and Keebler Avenue.
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.
