Motorists traveling on East Broadway between Alton and Route 3 in East Alton will have to deal with one more morning of using alternate routes as crews complete repairs to the section of the roadway affected by Tuesday's water main break. The span of East Broadway from the Cpl. Chris Belchick Memorial Express Way to Washington Avenue, in front of the Alton Police Department, will remain closed through the morning hours and is expected to reopen sometime this afternoon.

That section of East Broadway has been shut down since Tuesday morning due to a water main break. The break was repaired Tuesday afternoon but the road has remained closed while crews work to fill in the hole and repave the roadway. Barricades will remain in place until that work is completed today so motorists should note that all lanes of East Broadway bewteen the Cpl. Chris Belchick Memorial Express Way and Washington Avenue will be closed for at least part of today.

We will have the latest information on the closure as it becomes available here on Z-1570 and online at
