Arsenal's "Drawspan Open" Sign Still Broken


It's been a question for many drivers for months, the status of one of the "drawspan open" signs leading onto the Rock Island Arsenal.

Right now, the light in Rock Island, Ill., heading onto the island, to alert drivers the span is open, is out of service.

An Arsenal spokesperson says the light has been out of service about eight months because of a traffic accident.

However, the Arsenal says it hasn't been fixed yet because of several complications, including funding shortfalls.

Public works on the Arsenal is trying to find a cost-effective solution to the problem.
