I-55/70 to shut down Friday night in the Metro East

Posted: 2013/09/20 in construction

If the I-64 and the Poplar St. Bridge closures aren’t enough, this one will likely cause the through traffic to make the jaunt on 270 this weekend.

There certainly has been a lot of work going on around the I-55/70/64 split and this weekend, there will be even more.  Starting Friday night at 9 p.m., all westbound lanes of 55/70 will be closed from Illinois 203, right by the Gateway Motor Speedway, to the 55/70/64 split.

All lanes are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday. The interstate is closing so the westbound lanes can be resurfaced.  The way to get around it will be to take I-255 South to I-64 west back to I-55/70.  If you are traveling in Illinois this weekend, keep in mind that I-64 is still closed in both directions from the split to 25th Street.

That closure is also supposed to reopen on Monday.
