Madison County, IL (KSDK) - The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Tuesday the eastbound lanes on Interstate 270 at the Chain of Rocks Canal Bridge should be opened Wednesday, weather permitting.

When the eastbound lanes are reopened, lane restrictions will immediately move to the westbound lanes through Saturday, October 20.

The restrictions will be in place 24 hours a day in order to make repairs to the bridge.

Drivers using this route should expect significant delays, and are encouraged to find an alternate route.
