Repairs on the Centennial Bridge could take longer than expected, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.
News 8 spoke with John Wegmeyer from IDOT and he said replacing a main beam inside the bridge may be more difficult than expected.
More details will come out Monday or Tuesday, August 25 or 26, once workers have a chance to assess the issues.
According to the Bi-State Regional Commission, the original plan was to have the Centennial Bridge closed to traffic for 35 days and reopen in early September. Construction began on Sunday, August 3.
