Westbound traffic switch July 11

Posted: 2014/07/08 in construction, IDOT

IDOT announced that the westbound 270 traffic switch to the new canal bridge will take place sometime on July 11 at an undisclosed time.  With the traffic switch taking place, the ramp from Route 3 to WB 270 will reopen as well.  The eastbound traffic switch will take place sometime in September, weather permitting.

Even after the traffic switch, westbound drivers need to be aware that they are still in a active construction zone and the speed limits will still be reduced and more likely enforced.
