Don’t Fall For Fake I-80 Bridge Picture

If you saw the above picture on social media with the caption, “I-80 bridge in Joliet,” you may have been mortified. WJOL was suspicious and informed IDOT of the picture making rounds online. IDOT dispatched a crew to Joliet, did an inspection and found no such damage on the bridge. Turns out the picture that were circulating on social media were actually an edited picture of a bridge that’s not even in Illinois. But many states away. The Vantage Bridge in Washington State.
