COLLINSVILLE — The Illinois Department of Transportation on Thursday announced the southbound lanes of SIU Northern Access Road over Cahokia Creek will be reduced to one lane between Illinois 143 and New Poag Road beginning Wednesday, Sept. 14.
This lane closure will be ongoing and will remain in place for approximately one month. At that time, the northbound and southbound lanes will both be reduced to one lane for the remainder of the project. This work is necessary to repair the surfaces of both bridges and is estimated to be completed by late fall 2017.
Delays are expected. The department advises motorists to follow construction signs and drive with caution through work zones.
