Rockford To Close Second Bridge For Repairs

News

A second Rockford bridge will soon be closed for repairs.

The Pierpont Avenue Bridge on the city’s southwest side will close April 4th, that’s between Cunningham and Montague at Levings Lake.  The city announced Friday it’s replacing a bridge deck and making general repairs.

Drivers can take Springfield Avenue to get around it.  Construction is scheduled to be finished in mid-June.

This comes just a day after the city closed the Jefferson Street Bridge downtown.  Repairs are being made to the columns and beams.  It’s expected to re-open by the end of next month.
