EB Canal Bridge closures 1/26 -UPDATE CANCELLED

Posted: 2015/01/23 in construction

On January 26, weather permitting, one eastbound lane on 270 from just west of the canal bridge to Route 3 will be closed from 08:00 to 14:00, as crews from Walsh Construction will begin prepping what was once the old westbound canal bridge for demolition.  That demolition is tentatively scheduled for February 4.  UPDATE: Lane closure scheduled for 1/26 has been CANCELLED and will be rescheduled for another date.

Eastbound drivers can expect delays going all the way back towards Lilac.  Drivers in both directions can expect the 45 MPH construction zone speed limit to be enforced.  Please consider going through Alton to get around it, as the last lane closure that was back in December caused a 7 mile long traffic jam that went all the way back to 367.

EDITED at 01:12 on 1/24/15 reflecting the lane closures has been cancelled.  Sorry for the delay in getting this page updated – currently work the 15:30-00:00 shift right now.  KH
