Information submitted by Matt Heinen...
(4:50 p.m.) The northbound lane of Rt. 3 between Red Bud and Waterloo is backed up as a group of 10-speed bicyclists are making their way to the Waterloo Super 8. They should be coming into the Waterloo city limits by about 5:15 p.m. Drivers are advised to use caution when approaching this area. 

TheCycle Across Illinois participants are being escorted by Granite City and Illinois State Police patrol cars. The bikers are riding this week from Metropolis to Chicago to raise awareness for fallen police officers. Cycle Across Illinois is a bicycle ride started in 2005 to remember fallen heroes and to raise funds to assist their families in the healing process. Funds also support the Illinois Chapter of C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors).
