Lane Closures on Local Bridges

Story by WBGZ Radio

Three bridges that carry traffic between Illinois and Missouri will be partially closed during parts of today and tomorrow. The lane restrictions are needed to conduct bridge inspections. Engineers from IDOT will be doing inspections on the Clark Bridge in Alton, the I-270 Mississippi River Bridge, and the Martin Luther King Bridge in St. Clair County.

IDOT Bridge Maintenance Engineer Tim Krumm tells The Big Z they don't expect to go in-depth on any of the bridges.
