From the mississippi greenway webpage on the great rivers greenway website:

"Greenway Alert: Large portions of this greenway are impacted by flooding and are inaccessible. All flood gates are closed, Maline Creek is over the greenway, and the downtown riverfront is still underwater. The Old Chain of Rocks Bridge is closed to all visitors."

We got around the closures by going over the Eads bridge, through the small town of Brooklyn, IL, and then taking the school house and nature trails north east to rejoin the original route.
