Shutdown of westbound span of the bridge will begin Nov. 2.
St. Charles business owners are ready for the upcoming closure of the westbound span of the Blanchette Bridge and are prepared for a possible impact to sales this winter. Teresa Wapelhorst got out the Christmas decor and gifts weeks earlier than normal at her shop, Friperie, on South Main Street, just in case people don't make it back across the bridge before the end of the year.

If you're looking for a romantic get-away for Valentine's Day, look no further than your own backyard.
Welcome to the Great Escape.
