Brandon Road bridge closed for repairs

JOLIET TOWNSHIP – The Brandon Road bridge is closed for repairs that are expected to be completed Tuesday night.

The bridge over the Des Plaines River was closed Monday morning because of a mechanical problem, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.

More information about the repairs was not available.

The bridge over the Des Plaines River was closed for nearly three months before reopening in March after repairs of the center lock, the mechanism that locks the two halves of the drawbridge together.
