Ferry reopens and lanes close in the Metro East Monday
(KTVI) – The Illinois Department of Transportation will shut down some lanes of westbound Interstate 270 after the Monday-morning rush hour. The lanes will close between the Chain of Rocks Canal Bridge and the Mississippi River.
Crews will repair the pavement between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. every day this week.
The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Department announced the Golden Eagle Ferry will reopen at 5 a.m. Monday. Heavy ice flow in the Mississippi shut down the ferry this winter.
Its sister operation, the Winfield Ferry, is still closed.
