Centennial Bridge Closure, How To Avoid Delays

Posted: Updated:
Whether you live in Illinois and work in Iowa or vice versa,  it's likely you use the centennial bridge.

"Pretty much every morning I use the centennial bridge," said James Andrews, who is an Iowa resident.  

Andrews says he takes the bridge to save time, but with construction starting soon he'll have to look for another route.  

"It's going to be a challenge because i'm going to probably have to take I-74 along with a lot of other people who would be doing the same thing. I'll have to leave a little early and go home a little early or a little later," said Andrews.  

He's not alone because other drivers are worried too.

"It's going to add another half hour to my commute a day at least. then after work the rush hour is going to be horrible. I can just imagine now. It will probably be an extra hour just to get across that Arsenal bridge," said Zach Wioheom. "Traffic jams. It will be all backed up most likely."

That's something Denise Bulat with the Bi-State Regional Commission says can be avoided.

"We want everyone to know ahead of time and rethink how they get across the Mississippi river," said Bulat. "Think about using interstate 80 and 280 as much as possible because I-74 is congested."
