IDOT wants you to know the right lane of the two eastbound lanes of the MLK Jr. Bridge in East St. Louis will be closed during much of the day each day this week. From 6am - 3pm work is planned for the bridge, necessitating the lane closures.
This work is related to the ongoing bridge rehabilitation project that included the lengthy closure last year. The biggest part of the project was replacing the steel grid deck, with some other steel repairs. Crews also repainted the bridge before it reopened around Christmas.
