If you’re headed from downtown to East St. Louis over the next 9 days, expect traffic.

Eastbound I-64 will be closed from the I-55/70/64 split to 25th Street in East St. Louis. 

The closure starts tonight at 9 p.m.  The interstate is scheduled to reopen on Monday, Sept. 23.

Advice from the Illinois Department of Transportation:

  • Expect delays, especially during rush hour
  • Use the designated detour on eastbound I-55/70 to southbound I-255
  • Try to use alternate routes
  • Use public transit whenever possible
