Government Bridge Closed to Traffic Tomorrow
The Government Bridge will be closed tomorrow, Saturday January 26, from 9:00AM to 5:00PM CT for repairs.
The Quad City Times says they'll be repairing a cracked stringer on the underside of the bridge's swing span. While cars and trains won't be able to use the bridge, pedestrian traffic will not be affected. If you're planning a trip across the river tomorrow, you'll want to keep that in mind.
With how much time the Army Corps of Engineers spend on maintaining, fixing and keeping the bridge in good working order, it's gotta be the safest bridge across the Mississippi River. A big thank you to those who'll be out there doing the bridge work tomorrow. Stay warm.
