IDOT plans overnight lane closure along I-270 near Granite City

The Illinois Department of Transportation plans to have an overnight lane closure along westbound I-270 from the Illinois 3 interchange to the Mississippi River Bridge near Granite City beginning on Monday, weather permitting.

The lane closure is scheduled to be in place from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning, IDOT said. This lane closure is necessary to install a new guardrail along I-270 and the westbound work is expected to be completed by June 5.

IDOT said it plans to guide traffic through the work zone utilizing flaggers, traffic control devices and traffic control signing.
