IDOT announces opening of Big Muddy Bridge at Murphysboro

MURPHYSBORO, IL (KFVS) -

The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced that the Big Muddy Bridge is opening.

The bridge carrying IL 13 westbound over the Big Muddy River at Murphysboro will be open to all traffic beginning Friday, October 30, at 6 p.m.

Motorists should expect minor delays while traffic is being directed to the new structure.

Eastbound IL 13 traffic will remain in its current configuration, but motorists should use caution as the Contractor will be removing temporary concrete barrier on Friday evening.

Lane closures will remain in place in each direction for the next two weeks to facilitate resurfacing and other items of work required to complete the project.
