Three Rockford bridges now have weight limits after a route structure inspection by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
IDOT says bridges on Alpine and North 3rd Street have devolved to a point where restrictions are needed to reduce accelerated deterioration. The following weight restrictions are now in effect:
Signs both at and in advance of the structures will be posted next week. Both IDOT and Winnebago County oversized and overweight vehicle permitting offices are aware of the postings and will be detouring truck traffic elsewhere.
The Department of Public Works is currently strategizing the replacement or repair of the bridges and IDOT will continue inspecting their structures.
