Debris on river bridge = near mayhem

Posted: 2012/02/23 in IDOT, safety

Around 12:20 this afternoon, one of the many tractor-trailers that use the COR Bridge allegedly lost some of its load.

At least three vehicles hit this debris field and would pull over on the right shoulder as soon as they get off the bridge.

IDOT crews and at least one police vehicle is on the scene in less than 10 minutes.   Crews block both lanes for removal of foreign object from the roadway for at least 5 minutes before letting traffic move in the right lane:

This scene is totally cleared around 12:40.  Special thanks goes to G.Miller for creating this page.
