The area at that interchange is not that built up. But if IDOT wants a light...

I think there's a decent amount of left-turning thru traffic coming from the north. Google Maps sends travelers down IL 4 as an outer bypass of St. Louis for traffic between I-55 and I-64, presumably because it only passes through one town and doesn't go very far west. Good way to get between Springfield (and points north/west) and Mt. Vernon (and points southeast).

I have used IL 4 between I-55 and I-64 plenty of times. The road handles the traffic. I also think the interchanges of IL 4 with I-55, I-70, and I-64 are ok without lights. Heck, Indiana style traffic circles would be better than sitting at a worthless red light, when no other traffic is around

3 gas stations, one a travel center that handles trucks.

1 new hotel and 2 apartment complexes, all on the north side of I-64.

There are quite a few coal mine workers who live south of Springfield who have been relocated to Ziegler and Prairie State. IL-4 is the most direct route.
