I-270 lane closure delayed for weather

News-DemocratFebruary 26, 2014 

Planned lane closures will be delayed on part of Interstate 270 until temperatures rise.

A westbound lane was to be closed Thursday and Friday between the Chain of Rocks Canal and the Mississippi River on I-270, but that work won't begin until the cold wave relents.

The Illinois Department of Transportation reports once temperatures rise, the lane will be closed so that Walsh Construction Co. of Chicago can complete the work.

Crews are building a new bridge across the river at the site of the existing Chain of Rocks bridge spanning the canal and river.
