Interstate 57 from milepost 177 to milepost 184 will be closed was closed for just over an hour Thursday afternoon. The stretch of interstate that was closed was between Neoga and Mattoon.
The closure was so that crews could repair transmission lines across the interstate, which were damaged during yesterday’s winter storm. Traffic was rerouted onto IL Rte. 45 at Neoga (exit 177) northbound and at Mattoon (exit 184) southbound during the closure.
