As of 6/2/19, the Chester Bridge (Illinois SR 150) has been closed to foot and vehicle traffic until further notice due to historic flooding. We'll post more information here as we have it and potential alternate routes. One potential alternate is to take our Great Rivers South route from Farmington, MO, cross the Mississippi in Cape Giradeau, and then rejoin the TransAm just north of Golconda. See attached pdf for alternate route.

I created a RWGPS route that uses the Great Rivers South route to get around Chester. Any feedback?

Thanks for doing this. Also, if you look at the previous post there's an attachment called "Detour around Chester Bridge.pdf." It shows the Great Rivers South map panels you need to get around Chester.

Unfortunately, as of 6/20 the Cape Girardeau alternate is not possible due to flooding and closure of IL SR3 and SR146.

The Chester Bridge has been reopened as of 6/22. The detour is no longer necessary.
