Overnight lane closure planned on I-270 near Granite City

The Illinois Department of Transportation plans to have a nighttime lane closure on eastbound I-270 on Monday, between Chain of Rocks Canal bridge and the Mississippi River bridge, near Granite City, weather permitting.

The lane closure is scheduled to be in place from 9 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday.

Traffic will be guided through the work zone utilizing flaggers, traffic control devices and traffic control signing, IDOT said.

The lane closure is necessary to make modifications to the Intelligent Traffic Systems installed alongside the interstate, IDOT said.
