McKinley Bridge to close Friday for deck work

News-DemocratJuly 11, 2013 

A twice-delayed project to seal the deck of the McKinley Bridge is scheduled again for Friday.

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, the bridge will close at 9 p.m. Friday. The span is expected to be reopened by 5 a.m. Monday.

The first attempt to seal the bridge was postponed because of high flood waters in June. A couple of weeks later the rescheduled work was again delayed because of rain in the weather forecast.

Mason Landscaping & Construction Services of East St. Louis will handle the work.
