One can't help but to think back to 2008 or 1993 when you hear of the Memorial Bridge being closed due to the rising waters of the mighty Mississippi River.

The Memorial bridge was closed yesterday and remain closed until further notice.  That closure has forced the Bayview Bridge to become a two way bridge for the time being. As a result traffic backups are projected for the next few days coming into Quincy and heading to Missouri as well.

Motorist are asked to allow extra time to cross the river for the next few days (hopefully).  I told you it brings back some ugly flood memories!
