Eastbound Cedar Street Bridge, carrying traffic from Peoria to East Peoria, was closed for over two hours Tuesday night.

East Peoria police say an oversize load caused the closure, which also affected the entrance ramp from Main Street in East Peoria to the bridge.

It was anticipated the closure, which began at 7:45 p.m. Thursday, would last up to four hours. The bridge and entrance ramp were reopened around 10 p.m.
