Bruce Kern supplied
this aerial view of the new Main Street Bridge and concrete pavement
from the bridge to 5th Street. The east side of the bridge still just
has the asphalt base. I'm not sure if Bruce took the photo May 5th or
More about Bruce's
aerial photography company:
these photos from ground level with the left photo from about 7th &
Main looking east towards the new bridge. The right photo was taken near
the Cherokee Tag Agency looking west toward the bridge (& downtown).

Pavement for the final
2 lanes of Main between the new bridge and 5th was being forned this morning.
The left photo is from the bridge and the photo above shows the progress
of the paving machine (at Karen's) by about 10:30am. -- Ted -- Monday
Main Street Traffic Diverted to Broadway Since November 14, 2007
May 2nd, 2008: The north half of East Main has now been paved from 5th Street
to the new bridge. There is still asphalt (underlay) on the south side 2 lanes
as well as all 4 lanes on the east side of the bridge.
Coverage: The asphalt sub-surface was in place by April 19th on
the west side of the bridge.
Coverage: The asphalt sub-surface was started on the east side
of the new bridge April 17th.
message from this January 2008 postcard is still true ... but we are much
closer to traveling over a brand new 4-lane gateway to east Collinsville
with easier access & more traffic to these businesses that have suffered
for month. -- Ted -- May 7, 2008
Shortly after the new Broadway Bridge was dedicated and the dignataries
had cleared the area, traffic from Main Street was detoured to Broadway.
This will allow the 2-lane Main Street Bridge over Blackjack Creek to
be torn down and replaced with a 4-lane bridge. (Nov. 14, 2008)
