That's only been needed for decades at what is a very dangerous intersection.

With this project and the others mentioned here, the only remaining 6-lane gap in that section will be south of Marion to I-24.

I'm pretty sure the gap between the Marion Main St/Old IL 13 exit and the I-24/I-57 split will get the 6 landing once the route has it north to Mt Vernon

Yes, traffic exits in Marion for the IL 13 corridor, but pretty sure the bulk of the traffic, especially truck traffic, is following the 57 SW-NE route (Memphis-Chicago) or the 24/64 SE-NW route (Nashville-St Louis), and those two routes are multiplexed, despite only the 57 designation between Marion and Mt Vernon, hence the 6 laning needed. It is pretty heavy semi traffic on the weekdays

Still no I-80 Will County level of semis - can't believe that isn't getting a bigger rebuild and expansion than it is

I have a feeling this is for a new traffic light at IL-60's intersection with Wilson Road, something that indeed is probably needed.

Jesus fucking Christ it absolutely has been.  Google routes people north on County Line to IL-126 west all the time because it doesn't like the new S-curve on Ridge Road taking people back northeast, but making that left turn onto IL-126 west is impossible and horrifically dangerous.
