Construction to close ramp on I-57

Construction to close ramp on I-57

UNION COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - Construction along Interstate 57 in Union County, Illinois will lead to the shut down of an exit ramp for an expected two months.

The work, beginning on Monday, July 6 at 7 a.m, will shut down the northbound exit ramp to U.S. 51 near Dongola.

The lengthy shutdown is expected so crews can replace a section of pavement on the interstate.

If you drive in that area, you should take the Anna and Dongola interchanges to reach U.S. 51.

Traffic control devices will be in place to direct you to those alternate routes.

The Illinois Department of Transportation asked you to slow down and use extreme caution when driving through any work zone.
