Posted July 6, 2016 by Lonnie Hinton in News


The Illinois Department of Transportation would like to alert motorists of upcoming Interstate ramp closures.

Beginning on Tuesday, July 12, 2016, weather permitting, the I-57 south bound entrance and exit ramps (Exit 40) to Goreville will be closed for 10 days. These closures are necessary to construct pavement on I-57 adjacent to the south bound ramps along with milling and resurfacing the ramp pavement. The north bound entrance and exit ramps will remain open.

Motorists are encourages to use I-57 south bound exit 45 or I-24 east bound exit 7.

Message boards and signs will be in place to alert traffic of the closure.

Please slow down and use extreme caution while traveling through all work zones.
