Weather-related delays have resulted in the continued closure of the Ridge Road Bridge at Farmdale Road. over Farm Creek. A new bridge is being constructed adjacent to the current structure. The closure is necessary so the new bridge connection can be made with Ridge Road, according to the East Peoria Public Works Department. Work will continue on the connection through the end of September, when the new bridge will be opened to traffic and the old bridge will be removed.
Motorists will need to use alternate routes during the bridge closure.
