Due to an implosion of the old westbound canal bridge structure that was apparently botched, IDOT has announced that tomorrow from 09:45 to 12:00 that 270 in both directions from Riverview to Route 3 will be closed once again for another blast of the old westbound canal bridge structure.  Weather is not expected to be favorable tomorrow but that system is not expected to arrive until the evening peak.

Until that happens, unless otherwise has been announced on Twitter, one eastbound 270 lane will remain closed on the new canal bridge.  This means peak hour traffic tonight need to consider the detour routes as a #CodeRED alert is likely going to go up soon for the evening peak.
