The bridge carrying traffic on U.S. 60 and 62 over the Mississippi River, south of Cairo, will be reduced beginning the 23rd for repairs. According to the District 9 Office of the Illinois Department of Transportation, the lane closure is expected to be in place weekdays until about Nov. 22. All traffic will be maintained by flaggers. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the construction site as quickly as possible. If you are driving through the area, you should seek alternate routes as delays can be expected.
