One lane of westbound I-280 is closed due to a crash Wednesday afternoon.

Illinois State Police say a semi blew a tire and struck the guardrail at the base of the Mississippi Bridge. They say the tractor and trailer are stuck on the guardrail and are being removed.

One lane is closed at this time for cleanup. Drivers should expect minor delays for the next couple of hours.
