ISP announces temporary closure of portion of I-55

SANGAMON COUNTY - Illinois State Police say a portion of Interstate 55 will be temporarily closed on November 25.

Authorities say from 9:00 a.m. until about 11:00 a.m., all lanes of traffic on Interstate 55 northbound from milepost 92 to milepost 94 in Sangamon County will be closed.  Police say the temporary closure is due to the removal of a damaged wire.

Motorists who need to use Interstate 55 near the areas that will be closed are being advised of a detour.  Use exit 92 A to Sixth Street, turn right onto Stevenson Drive, and exit to Interstate 55 northbound.  Interstate 55 southbound will have one lane open for travel at that location.
