THE MCCLUGAGE BRIDGE PROJECT
Although the eastbound McClugage Bridge has been rehabilitated several times, the basic structure is over 70 years old and is approaching the end of its serviceable life. Updated design standards, new safety criteria, increased daily traffic, and the need for bicycle and pedestrian accommodations are factors that must be considered for this major crossing point over the Illinois River. These factors indicate the need for another rehabilitation, or complete reconstruction, of the eastbound McClugage Bridge structure.
