Repairs to the deck of the Interstate 270 Mississippi River Bridge near Granite City will prompt long traffic delays on Monday, Dec. 12, the Illinois Department of Transportation says.
Weather permitting, the westbound right lane will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Because the lane restriction will result in significant traffic delays, motorists are encouraged to consider alternate routes.
Traffic control devices will be utilized to assist motorists during the restrictions. IDOT is asking motorists be patient, reduce speed, obey warning signs and use additional caution when traveling through the work zone.
