I-57 Lane Closure Thursday near Route 161

CENTRALIA, IL — The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced a lane closure on northbound I-57 Thursday necessary for pavement patching.

The right lane near the Route 161 interchange will be closed from 7a-3p but IDOT reports all entrance and exit ramps at the interchanges will remain open.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, the 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.
