What’s New With The Route 251 Bridge?

Posted by wlpo on June 11, 2009

A tarp will be going up over the main truss of the Route 251 Bridge soon. The roads been closed between Peru and Oglesby since late April and will stay that way as a crew paints the bridge.

Before they paint the bridge, they have to remove the old paint which contains lead.

So far, they’ve painted the southern approach. Don Ernat with I-DOT says in the next couple of weeks they’ll be moving on to the main truss.

The bridge is scheduled to reopen at the end of October.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
