The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Wednesday lane restrictions have begun on Interstate 270 from St. Thomas Road to the Chain of Rocks Mississippi River bridge.
Work will be done at night between 6 p.m. and 5 a.m. The lane restrictions are necessary to perform pavement patching and resurfacing. The work is expected to be complete by Nov. 15.
Delays are expected. The department advises motorists to follow all construction signs and drive with caution through the work zones.
