Elephants Crossing the Bob Michel Bridge

Yep, that’s what happened in Peoria/East Peoria this morning. Good times. Take a look..


From IDOT’s video description:

The elephants from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey needed to cross the Bob Michel Bridge over the Illinois River the morning of Tuesday, September 20th to make it to their upcoming show in Peoria. We joined local police agencies to help them make the journey safely by temporarily stopping traffic on the bridge.

They made it across in 15 minutes.

It was quite a scene out there. You just never know what each day will bring 🙂
