(KPLR) – 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.
