CAIRO, IL (KFVS) -

The US 60/62 bridge appears to be open five months earlier than expected after repairs were made to the bridge.

On Monday, Oct. 12, cars were seen driving across the bridge. It opened early due to repairs being finished sooner than anticipated.

The bridge extends from Alexander County, Illinois to Mississippi County, Missouri over the Mississippi River.

The bridge was set to close to all traffic between Monday, March 16, 2015 through a tentative date of March 18, 2016.
