The Ridge Road Bridge at Farmdale Road, over Farm Creek, is closed for approximately two weeks. 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. It is expected that the week of Sept. 8 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.
