Another I-74 Bridge Detour Is Coming Tonight
If you head back over the bridge to the Illinois side of things at the end of the day, be aware of your timing tonight! You just might get detoured.
According to an update from the I-74 River Bridge Twitter account, I-74 eastbound traffic will be forced to get off at Avenue of the Cities starting at 7 p.m. tonight. Traffic will then be redirected through the intersection and back onto the ramp.
The good news is, it's only for tonight! Per the announcement, traffic flow will be back to (relatively) normal in the early hours of tomorrow morning.
This Twitter account has been posting consistent updates to the construction of the bridge, and as you drive by it you can see just how much of it has actually gotten done. As much as I struggle with the sporadic closures and rerouting, it is cool to see the new bridge coming together!
