Portion of westbound Interstate 270 will close Saturday

News-DemocratOctober 11, 2013 

The Illinois Department of Transportation will close down all lanes of westbound Interstate 270 from Interstate 55/70 to Illinois 157 Saturday so crews can replace a damaged bridge beam.

The closure begins at 5:30 a.m. and is expected to end by 9 p.m. No traffic will be permitted to travel in the westbound lanes during the closure but will be routed along a marked detour along Interstate 55/70 and Interstate 255. The closure is required so crews can remove and replace a damaged beam on the Meridian Road Bridge over Interstate 270 at mile marker 10.3.

The department expects the work to be completed on time.
