The Rock Island Gate to the Government Bridge was now closed for at least a month for construction.

On Monday,  April 13, 2015 the bridge and the Rock Island viaduct closed. Arsenal employees would still be able to use the bridge from the Davenport side to get to the Arsenal, but it's closed to the rest of the public.

"Signs and barricades will be posted to warn and direct traffic. The American Discovery Trail will remain open," said a statement from the Arsenal about the closure.
