I-270 Closure This Weekend
The Illinois Department of Transportation announces an upcoming closure of westbound Interstate 270 between I-55/70 and I-255 this weekend. There will be no access to westbound I-270 from I-55/70, Illinois 159 or Illinois 157 starting at 6 pm Friday, October 29, until 5 am Monday, November 1.
A detour will be marked using I-55/70 west to I-255 north; however, local motorists are encouraged to select the best alternate route for their specific trip.
These lane closures are necessary to allow crews to perform pavement repairs along the corridor in advance of the winter season.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
