Motorists who travel on Illinois 143 in Edwardsville can expect daily lane closures beginning Tuesday, May 28, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. These lane closures, expected to occur between Illinois 159 and High Street, are necessary to remove the existing surface and replace it with new asphalt.
IDOT estimated the work will be completed by July. The department requests motorists traveling through this area reduce speed and use caution. For more information, contact Supervising Field Engineer Barry Gibbs at 618-346-3351.
