If you travel Interstate 270 across the Mississippi River, you should watch for some nightly lane closures.  Work on the bridges over the Mississippi River and the Chain of Rocks Canal is nearly wrapped up, but traffic in each direction will have to deal with closures between 9pm and 5am much of this week, weather permitting.

IDOT Engineer Barry Gibbs tells The Big Z this work is a continuation of the new Canal Bridge project.

He says in addition to the lane restrictions, the ramp from eastbound I-270 onto southbound IL 3 will be closed against tonight, weather permitting.  A posted detour will be in place to guide eastbound motorists to IL 203, where they will exit and be directed back onto westbound I-270 and sent back to IL 3.
