U.S. 6 bridge safe; IDOT will continue to inspect, collect info

Don’t be surprised if you see more Illinois Department of Transportation vehicles on Route 251 near U.S. 6 in Peru, as was the case on Tuesday morning, when there were multiple vehicles there at once.

The bridge is safe, said Junior Senat, bridge maintenance engineer for IDOT District 3, headquartered in Ottawa. IDOT workers will continue to inspect the bridge and collect information, Senat said.

There are no restrictions on the driving lanes or sidewalks.
