Both Directions October 8 Weekend
The Illinois Department of Transportation today announced that
both directions of I-64 will be closed from west of IL 111 to

8, 2010 at 9:00 p.m. until Monday, October 11, 2010 at 5:00

allowed west of IL 111 nor will any eastbound traffic be allowed
east of the I-64/55/70 split. This work is expected to be
completed by 5:00 a.m. Monday, October 11, 2010.
