Lane closure planned on Illinois 157/163

Intermittent lane closures on Illinois 157/163 are planned beginning Wednesday, weather permitting, the Illinois Department of Transportation said.

Work is planned on the road between I-255 in Cahokia and the intersection of Illinois 157 and Illinois 13. The closure is necessary to resurface the existing pavement, IDOT said.

Signing, traffic control devices and flaggers will be used to aid motorists through the work zones. All work is scheduled to be completed by May 8, weather permitting, IDOT said.
