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.

    LoL I sure they knew the whole time but just coming out now with it.. Its kinda like the retards in wapello who wanted a new pool. They come back halfway through completion and say they need more money because they know once construction has started theres no stopping it.

    Or the idiots at Wapello school that desperately wanted this addition at the school.. Halfway through construction they need 100,000 more because they need to make it wheelchair accessable..
