Interstate 270 bridge repairs to slow traffic on Wednesday and Thursday

Commuters who take the Interstate 270 bridge connecting Granite City to Missouri will experience delays this week, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced Tuesday.

IDOT said it would restrict lanes on the bridge to complete deck repairs, weather permitting.

The westbound right lane will be closed from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday. The same lane will be closed again from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday.

IDOT asks for motorists’ patience and caution when driving in the work zone.
