    ST. LOUIS, MO (KMOV) — The Martin Luther King Bridge will open in August, the Illinois Department of Transportation said on Wednesday, after months of delays.

The bridge was supposed to open in fall 2019, but several delays followed; the most recent delay in reopening was due to flooding.

The bridge closed in August 2018 so crews could perform extensive repairs to the ramps and roadways.
