Heavy equipment is digging away at the old Route 51 bridge approach in La Salle. Work to remove the retaining walls and concrete pads from the old bridge is going as scheduled according Dave Blanchette with the Illinois Capital Development Board.

The goal is to allow for more level ground and an improved view near Lock 14 and the Illinois and Michigan Canal. RNR Trucking of Morris is doing the work $222,000.
