PEORIA, Ill. -- Repairs to the MacArthur Bridge have been postponed due to excessive rain.

The project which was set to begin Tuesday, is now scheduled to start on Monday, June 3. MacArthur Highway, between Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Richard Allen Drive, will be closed to make repairs to the bridge deck. The work is expected to take nine days.

Romeo B. Garrett Avenue between Richard Allen Drive and Saratoga Street, which is underneath the bridge, will also be closed so that the repair crews can safely perform the work.
