On-ramp to I-64 to be closed for pavement work

The Illinois Department of Transportation plans to close the northbound Illinois 159 ramp to westbound Interstate 64 in Fairview Heights to allow for pavement work, the agency said.

Workers are scheduled to put in a new asphalt service on the on-ramp from Monday through Thursday, weather permitting. The ramp is scheduled to be closed daily between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., IDOT said.

A marked detour is planned during the ramp closure period, the agency said. Motorists are urged to use caution in the work area.
