There will be some further traffic delays involving construction on Interstate 70 starting on Monday in Vandalia. The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced that the eastbound entrance ramp from U.S. Route 51 to Interstate 70 will be closed beginning on Monday, October 17th to complete work in conjunction to the Kaskaskia River Bridge. Beginning on Monday, the entrance ramp from Route 51 to east bound I-70 will be closed to remove the temporary ramp constructed for the work associated with the construction of the new Kaskaskia River Bridge. The ramp will be closed all week and is scheduled to be re-opened on Friday evening, October 21st. During this time traffic will be detoured along U.S. Route 40. Once the work is complete, the eastbound structure will be re-opened and I-70 traffic will be re-routed from the crossovers back to the eastbound lanes.
