Share post:

PONTIAC, Ill. – A serious accident earlier this morning has caused all lanes of northbound Interstate 55 to remain blocked at milepost 193, about 4 miles before Pontiac. As a result, traffic is being diverted at Chenoa (exit 187), and commuters are advised to seek alternative routes.

The shutdown of I-55 Northbound occurred just after 6 a.m. on Monday morning, and Pontiac Firefighters Local #3239 has already responded to the incident. Emergency crews are on the scene, but no further details are available at this time.

The cause of the shutdown is still unknown, and it is uncertain how long the road will remain closed. Authorities are urging drivers to avoid the area and exercise caution if they must travel through the region.

Updates on the situation will be made available as soon as possible, and commuters are advised to monitor local news for more information.
