The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that eastbound Interstate 270 ramp to Illinois 157 (exit 9) will be closed beginning at 6 a.m. Saturday, June 13, weather permitting.
The closure is necessary to do pavement repairs, and the ramp is expected to be open by 6 p.m. that same day.
This ramp closure will be concurrent with the intermittent I-270 lane closures that are currently in effect between Illinois 3 and the I-55/70/270 interchange. These lane closures will continue each weeknight and throughout the weekend for the next few weeks.
These closures are part of a larger resurfacing project which will include additional intermittent lane closures that will start after the Fourth of July weekend. Future press releases will detail these closures.
Drivers may experience delays when traveling through the work zone. Drivers are urged to reduce speed, be alert for changing conditions, obey all construction signage, and refrain from using mobile devices while approaching and traveling through the work zone.
