The bridge that carries Highway 106 across the Illinois River in eastern Pike County is closed.

The Scott County Sheriff’s Department posted on its Facebook page Thursday morning that a barge had struck the bridge at Florence, and that the bridge was closed until further notice.

Anyone who usually uses the 90-year-old lift-span bridge will need to detour onto Interstate 72 and cross the Illinois River at Valley City.
