BATTER UP! GET 6 MONTHS FOR $19.99

COLLINSVILLE — All southbound lanes of Interstate 255 from I-55/70 to I-64 in St. Clair County are closed this weekend to make bridge repairs, the Illinois Department of Transportation says.

A posted detour will direct through-traffic to take southbound I-55 to eastbound I-64 to return to southbound I-255.

The closing started at 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, with reopening expected by 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 7.

The work was originally scheduled to take place last month, but was delayed because of storms.

The contractor on this project is Keeley & Sons, IDOT said.
