Keokuk/Hamilton bridge closed due to flooding

Hamilton, IL (WGEM) – The Illinois Department of Transportation closed the Keokuk/Hamilton Bridge Wednesday afternoon because of the rising water.

Water covered U.S. 136 Tuesday afternoon, prompting the decision to close.

Hamilton Mayor Walter Sellens said IDOT crews were on scene trying to keep the water off the road, but the water rose significantly over the lunch hour.

The closest crossings are at Fort Madison and Quincy, but one bridge is already closed in Quincy.
