McKinley Bridge to be closed for deck work Friday night

News-DemocratJune 26, 2013 

The McKinley Bridge will be closed to traffic at 9 p.m. Friday so the Illinois Department of Transportation can clean and seal its deck.

The work is expected to be completed in time to reopen the bridge to traffic by 5 a.m. Monday. The job is to be done by Mason Landscaping and Construction Services of East St. Louis.

The closure was supposed to take place earlier this month but was postponed because of Mississippi River flooding.
