Interstate 57 Lane Closure, Salem, Illinois,

Salem, Illinois – The Illinois Department of Transportation announces a right lane closure on
I-57 SB, three miles North of US 50, over the railroad. Work will start on Thursday, November
18, 2021, at 8:00 AM and be completed by Friday, November 19, 2021, at 3:30 PM. All
entrance and exit ramps will remain open during construction.

These restrictions are needed to perform critical bridge deck repairs at this location. IDOT
District 8 Operations forces will make the needed improvements. Full access will be restored
as soon as possible.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the
work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay
close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits,
refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
