Lane closure required to prep the old westbound bridge that is on the right.

After being called off last week, IDOT has announced the rescheduled lane closure for the eastbound lanes of the canal bridge.  The closure will last 08:00 to 14:00, weather permitting.  The closure is needed to prep the old westbound canal bridge for the implosion that is slated to take place on February 3.  Expect delays to start at Lilac and the 45 MPH construction zone speed limit to be enforced for both directions.

Weather for this weekend, especially on Sunday is not expected to be favorable.  The models are hinting the heaviest snow just to the north of the I-270 corridor right now, but it is still subject to change.  The WPC odds have about 80% chance for 1″ snowfall and 50% chance of snowfall exceeding 4 inches right now.
