The U.S. 54 bridge over the Mississippi River in Louisiana, known as the Champ Clark Bridge, will close each day beginning Monday, August 10 through Thursday, August 13 from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. so the Missouri Department of Transportation can conduct its annual in-depth inspection on the 87-year-old bridge.
Water has receded from U.S. 54 on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River at the Champ Clark Bridge, and IDOT and MoDOT crews opened the road to traffic just a few minutes ago. The bridge was closed last week due to flooding from the Mississippi River.
Monday, April 22 through Thursday, April 25, 2013, MoDOT will be working on the Champ Clark Bridge over the Mississippi River at Louisiana, Missouri. Crews will be working from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Traffic will be reduced to one lane with flagmen controlling traffic through the work zone area.
The work on the Champ Clark Bridge scheduled for today was postponed due to the weather. Weather permitting, Tuesday October 2, 2012 MoDOT crews will close the Champ Clark Bridge at Louisiana to perform sealing operations.
