From the Illinois State Police at 6:20 am:
Both lanes on Interstate 70 are still closed. Interstate 70 will be shut
down for an additional two hours. Please continue to slow down and use
caution. Please be prepared to exit at milepost 52.
Illinois State Police reported the closure was due to the investigation pedestrian crash. Traffic is being re-routed onto Route 40. So, Route 40 from Mulberry Grove to Vandalia will be very heavy with traffic this morning.
