As part of one of these projects, we are proposing to close Interstate 64 between Interstate 55/70 and IL Rte 111 in East St. Louis, IL from 9:00 p.m. October 8th through 5:00 a.m. October 11th in order to demolish the 15th Street Bridge over Interstate 64.

This project involves removing the existing structure and replacing it with a new structure. Additional work includes resurfacing St. Clair Avenue between 15th Street and 18th Street; relocation of the eastbound exit ramp to a new location across from Wabasha Street; and the relocation of eastbound entrance ramp to Interstate 64 at the same intersection. The westbound entrance ramp will also be relocated to a new location on Baugh Avenue between 15th and 18th Street.
