   There's good news for drivers in north county.  Missouri transportation officials report that all lanes of westbound I-270 have reopened after a broken water main had shut it down for several hours.  

   Just before 10 o'clock Monday night police closed westbound I-270 because of the broken main at Old Halls Ferry.  The closure caused traffic to back up all the way into Illinois.  

   By 1 a.m. Tuesday, one lane had reopened.  

   At about 2:30 Tuesday morning, MoDOT reported that all lanes had reopened.
