The Illinois Department of Transportation reports that lanes of the Interstate 280 Bridge, also known as the Baker Bridge, will be closed for inspection this week.
One westbound lane will be closed today and Tuesday and one eastbound lane will be closed Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Originally, the lanes were scheduled to be closed from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
The inspections come as the bridge is being used as the primary signed detour for U.S. 67 and Centennial Bridge traffic. That bridge remains closed until Sept. 6.
