Construction To Close Interstate Ramps South of Marion

(MARION, IL) — Starting Monday, you won’t be able to use the on and off ramps from Illinois 148 southbound to I-57 south of Marion. IDOT says the ramps will be closed to facilitate rehabilitation of the roadway until Wednesday, weather permitting. That’s when the ramps are scheduled to reopen. Crews will be removing the existing surface, fracturing (rubblizing) the existing concrete pavement to create the new base and placing new hot mix asphalt pavement and shoulders. Major delays can be expected in this area between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. You should take alternate routes to your destination. Message boards will be in place to remind you about the road work on I-57 south of Marion.
