  • The Illinois Department of Transportation today announced that effective Tuesday, November 1, 2011, nighttime lane closures will be encountered on I-270, between the Chain of Rocks Canal and the Mississippi River, near Granite City, for both westbound and eastbound lanes. The lane closures will begin at 9:00 p.m. and the lanes will be reopened by 5:00 a.m., nightly. Traffic will be guided through the work zone utilizing flaggers, traffic control devices, and traffic control signing. Please use extreme caution while traveling through the work zone.
