One lane of Mississippi River bridge closed

The Illinois Department of Transportation announces a right lane closure on northbound Illinois 255 over Illinois 111.

Work will be done between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Friday, April 16, weather permitting. All entrance and exit ramps will remain open during construction.

These restrictions are needed to perform critical bridge deck repairs. IDOT District 8 Operations forces will make the needed improvements. Full access will be restored as soon as possible.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
