If you use the Riverside Bridge as part of your daily commute, you're gonna need to plan on a different route.

John Rodriguez

Starting today bridge work begins on the Riverside Blvd. bridge. The work is scheduled to only be two weeks, expected to wrap up on Friday, July 20th.

Traffic will be down to one lane in each direction, with Traffic control on hand during construction.

And since the intersection of Main and Riverside is still not complete, this area will be very congested. If you have to travel anywhere near these areas, a different path of transportation would be highly recommended.

Any further information on the Riverside Blvd. bridge construction, please contact Loves Park Public Works at 815-639-2510
