According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, the Fred Schewngel Memorial Bridge connecting LeClaire, Iowa, and Rapids City, Illinois, will be undergoing deck patching beginning Monday, Aug. 8 and lasting through Friday, Aug. 12.

To facilitate the repairs, the Iowa-bound right lane will be closed overnights for the duration of the repairs. During that time, traffic will be directed using additional signage.
