PEORIA (WEEK) -- The closing of the Murray Baker Bridge is just weeks away and preliminary work will include lane closures next week.
Closures on Interstate 74 crossing the Illinois River include:
- March 9-13: The outside westbound lane will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- March 14: The outside westbound lane will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
