 The Illinois Department of Transportation has released an update on Centennial Bridge construction and some unexpected problems have arisen.

John Wegmeyer of the Illinois DOT says he is "very concerned" about the schedule but that he will know more early next week.

Wegmeyer said that, as in any project, they're finding issues that weren't initially anticipated. A transverse beam needs replacing among other issues.

The Centennial Bridge was originally supposed to reopen September 6, 2014.
