The Route 83 northbound ramp from northbound I-55 has reopened after crews cleaned debris from an accident involving a semi carrying a concrete beam.
According to police reports, a 38-year-old male driver from Waterman, Illinois, was traveling on the ramp from Interstate 55 northbound to northbound Route 83 at 9:35 a.m. when the concrete beam on the trailer shifted, causing the trailer to roll on its side across the ramp.
