Iconic Cry Baby Bridge near Monmouth, Ill. Reportedly closed
A great tradition for many in northern Illinois is to travel to the infamous Cry Baby Bridge in Monmouth. Sadly, that tradition will not happen again this year, and maybe never again. The bridge that crosses 60th Street over Cedar Creek would be closed to vehicular traffic.
The story surrounding the Crybaby Bridge is that there was a fatal accident on a rural road involving children.
If you drive to the bridge and put your car in neutral, the ghosts of children will push your car over the bridge. You can sprinkle baby powder on your bumper and you will see their little handprints in the powder after pushing you.
Unfortunately, the bridge would be closed permanently, due to safety concerns related to the structure of the bridge. For now, rocks have been put in place to block the road leading to the bridge. Permanent doors are expected to follow.
It is terrible news to learn that a stop so well known to horror fanatics will no longer be available and available for our viewing pleasure.
For thrill seekers in Lincoln Country, they will need to find another equally haunted and easily accessible place.
Many have visited the famous bridge. Here are a few other documented visits to YouTube:
