Nobody enjoys sitting in traffic. When you are talking about shutting down part of a major interstate highway though, then most commuters will try to avoid the area at all costs. Starting this Friday night at 9 p.m. (September 13), all eastbound lanes of Interstate 64 in East St. Louis from the I55/I70/I64 split to 15th street will be shut down for nine days before reopening on September 23 at 5 a.m.
We recommend that you try transit as an option to avoid the detour and delays especially during peak commute times.
Don’t even know where to start! Not a problem. Our Metro Transit Information team is here from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday to help you plan your trip whether you are thinking about taking MetroLink and MetroBus.
