Vermilion River at Ed Hand to Close for Construction Starting Thursday

Posted by wlpo on September 6, 2016

When a bridge is replaced, sometimes it isn’t just the drivers who are left looking for a detour.

If you were planning on taking your boat down the Vermillion past the Ed Hand Bridge in Oglesby, you’ll want to find another way to go. According to the LaSalle County Highway Department, the river will be closed to traffic Thursday, Friday, and Monday from 7:00 to 4:30.

The closure is so that structural steel can be put in place over the river. The Ed Hand Bridge was closed for replacement back in April. The replacement is expected to be completed early next year.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
