Mississippi River Chester bridge closure - June 2019
« on: June 10, 2019, 03:16:24 am »
as noted by another here, the bridge over the mississippi at chester, ill, is closed.  the mississippi levee alternative is under 15 feet of water in places. luckily, stopped at the sheriff's office and PD in murphysboro before heading to chester. also luckily i am riding supported, so put the bike on the back and started looking for a way around. very hard with the flooding. finally just went south and crossod the mississippi at cape girardeau, mo. plotting a course to farmington tomorrow and try to backtrack from there. adventure cycling have any ideas?

How about the Hwy. 47 bridge from Dutzow to Washington?   Is that out as well?   That's what we plan to take from the Katy Trail onto Great Rivers South ACA maps.

See this topic. There is an attached pdf to get around the Chester bridge closure.
