NORMAL, Ill -- A roadway in Normal is closed Thursday evening -- not for construction -- the fire department is responsible.

Virginia Avenue between Linden and Broadway is closed until 10 pm for firefighter training.

The Fire Department is practicing complex rope rescues.

During the drill, crews will work to bring an immobilized patient from Constitution Trial, which runs under the road, to the bridge above.

The Normal fire department is also expected to close the road again on Monday for the same training.
