I-55 Reopened After High Winds Shut It Down

Northbound and southbound lanes of Interstate 55 (I-55) between mileposts 63 and 82 are reopened after winds decreased.  Out of an abundance of caution, the Illinois State Police and the Illinois Department of Transportation closed that section of I-55 this afternoon due to extreme winds creating low visibility and dangerous driving conditions.  Use caution when driving in strong winds. 


Winds on Wednesday are expected to be better with 10 miles an hour sustained and 17 mph gusts.
