ALTON, Ill. (KSDK) - The Illinois Department of Transportation anticipates the now-closed Great River Road could be reopened between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. Monday.

An IDOT spokesperson said those times are a goal and not a promise since the Mississippi River is still high.

Workers have been clearing the road of debris and barriers since earlier that morning.

Reopening Great River Road will prove good news for some businesses that had to shut down because of the closure.
