The planned closure of the eastbound lanes of Interstate 55/70 from the interstate 55/70/64 split to Exchange Avenue in East St. Louis has been canceled.

The closure had been scheduled to begin this weekend, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation, and instead, has been rescheduled tentatively for Aug. 16-18. The delay and rescheduling was caused by unfavorable weather conditions forecasted for the weekend of Aug. 3-4.
