The Illinois Department of Transportation will close a bridge in Scott County for maintenance work later this week.

IDOT announced Monday plans to temporarily close the Florence Bridge on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The bridge will re-open upon completion of the repair work.

IDOT officials advise motorists to choose alternative routes during this period.

The bridge runs over Route 106 into Florence in Pike County.
