The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that lane closures will occur in both directions on Illinois 255 from Illinois 143 near Wood River to Illinois 140 near Bethalto beginning May 26.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane. These lane restrictions are necessary to complete the micro-surfacing of the existing pavement through July 31.
The department asks that motorists be patient, reduce speed, and use caution when traveling near and throughout this work zone. Allow for extra time when traveling in this location and watch for stopped traffic ahead. Additional signing and traffic control devices will be provided to assist motorists through the work zones.
The contractor on this project is Microsurfacing Contractors LLC of St. Louis.
