Drivers are urged to find an alternate route while construction crews remove and replace a bridge beam over Interstate 270 in Glen Carbon on Saturday.  The Illinois Department of Transportation will close the westbound lanes of I-270 tomorrow morning at 5:30 between Interstate 55-70 and Highway 157 so the repair can be made at the Meridian Road Bridge.

The closure will be in place for the westbound lanes only and motorists will be detoured onto I-55/70 and 255.  The closure will last until 9pm Saturday.
