I-255 Lighting

East. St Louis, IL
Completed 2020
Subcontractor to Keeley and Sons / Kilian Corp Joint Venture

IDOT closed a deteriorated section of Interstate 255 to make repairs to pavement. During the closure all of the roadway lighting in the construction zone was replaced as well. Wissehr installed 5 miles of underground conduit and cable, all new aluminum light poles, and replaced all of the old high pressure sodium light fixtures with new energy-efficient LED fixtures. The job was performed under very strict time constraints. Wissehr was able meet or exceed the required pace and the roadway was opened to traffic one month ahead of schedule.
