All drivers, especially large trucks and semis would be doing themselves a favor if they avoided the 200 block of Rockford's East State Street for most of the week.

The State Street bridge will be closed to make water service repairs for 2 new restaurants coming soon to downtown Rockford, according to wrex.com. The 200 block of E. State will be closed to ALL traffic between Water and Madison streets. There will be detours should you need to use this area of Rockford. The State Street bridge will be narrowed and it would be best if large trucks and semis used a different bridge to cross the river.

The water service repairs for new restaurants, Taco Betty's and The Standard should be completed by Wednesday.
