Weekend Closing Hours for Government Bridge


Local motorists may want to avoid Government Bridge this weekend. The bridge connecting Arsenal Island with Davenport will be closed, during the day, Saturday and Sunday.

Closing from 6 am until 6 pm both days will allow the Iowa Interstate Railroad to continue repairing its tracks on the upper level. 

Walkers and bike riders will still be able to cross while the work goes on. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
