Posted Friday night:
After several delays pushed the date back three months, the Ruby Street Bridge over the Des Plaines River is to reopen to traffic Wednesday, Joliet city officials said Friday.
The Illinois Department of Transportation began doing repairs last summer with a planned reopening in mid-November, but problems with parts and other issues resulted in the date being pushed back three times.
