New Bridge Worries Spring Valley Mayor

Posted by wlpo on April 12, 2011

The Route 89 bridge over the Illinois River south of Spring Valley isn’t scheduled to be closed, demolished and replaced until 2016, but Mayor Cliff Banks is already worried about what it could mean for local businesses.

The Newstribune reports that Banks wants to ask IDOT if there’s anyway the road could be open to traffic during construction.  Plans call for the new bridge to go where the present bridge sits.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
