55/70 Westbound Work Done Early In Metro-East

COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (KMOX)- The Illinois Department of Transportation says contractors finished their work ahead of schedule, so a well-traveled part of roadway opened sooner than expected, Sunday.

All lanes of westbound Interstate 55/70 from west of Route 203 to the 55/70/64 split opened to traffic around 10:30 am.

IDOT says drivers need to proceed with caution through that zone, though, as the lane configuration has changed slightly.
