The Illinois Department of Transportation says the closure is needed to replace expansion joints and beams across the width of the bridge. Crews have been working on the bridge since June as part of the $3.35 million project, which also includes concrete repairs to several piers and the deck as well as steel repairs to the structure.

Motorists are being directed to the Interstate 280 bridge to cross the Mississippi.
