Road Sign says Lane Closed
Jon Tyson

The Illinois Department of Transportation would like to alert motorists traveling on Interstate 24 near Metropolis of a lane closure. Use caution as one lane of I-24 eastbound or westbound will be closed over two periods during the upcoming construction. The first period, March 6th through 10th. The second period will be March 13th through 17th. Both closures are weather dependent and will only be on weekdays, Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm each day. For IDOT District 9 updates, see traveler information at www.https://www.gettingaroundillinois.com/GettingAroundIllinois.com

The lane closures are necessary to perform bridge inspections on the structure carrying Interstate 24 over the Ohio River.
