CAT Tracks for March 6, 2019

In two weeks, the US 60/62 bridge that crosses the Mississippi River in the Cairo area will be closed for crews to perform a required annual safety inspection. (The I-57 Interstate bridge will remain open, albeit with lane closures due to construction/repair.)


That's the old MISSISSIPPI river bridge connecting Cairo to Missouri, not the Cairo-Wickliffe bridge over the Ohio river. Latest website news on the Cairo-Wickliffe bridge is that it will now open on March 9th, not the previously forecast March 6th (which was originally forecast to reopen February 28th.)

And, with the forecast for further rain this week, well, stay tuned...
