The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced lane restrictions starting today at mile marker 11.6 on Interstate 55/70 near Collinsville.

The section of interstate over Beltline Road will be restricted to one lane in order to perform emergency bridge deck patching, according to a press release from IDOT. All lanes are expected to reopen by 3 p.m. Monday. 

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area, according to the release. 

To avoid the work area, motorists should consider the use of alternate routes, when feasible. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones. They are also encouraged to obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
