   North St. Louis is losing a major grocer.  Officials with Schnucks Markets announced Monday plans to close the Schnucks store at North Grand and Kossuth on May 10th.  
   Company officials say none of the 65 store employees will lose their jobs.  All will be transferred to other nearby stores.  
   Schnucks' President and CEO Todd Schnuck says the store has been operating at a loss since it was purchased as part of the 1995 National Supermarkets acquisition.  Schnuck says sales at the store won't offset the cost of needed repairs at the 45 year old structure.  
   Alderman Freeman Bosley Senior, who represents the area around the store, is critical of the move.  He tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that closing the store is "really hurtful to that community."  He says Schnucks should build a new store on the site.

   Fewer drivers than expected are using a new Mississippi River bridge downtown.  

   The new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge carries Interstate 70 over the river between Illinois and Missouri.  It had been projected to reduce traffic by as much as 50 percent of the Eads and Martin Luther King Bridges, and by 20 percent on the Poplar Street Bridge.

   But that hasn't happened.  KMOV-TV reports that data shows that since the Stan Span opened in February, the Eads Bridge has seen a decline of about 25 percent, and King Bridge traffic has dropped about 40 percent, but traffic on the Poplar is down only 7 percent.  

   Transportation officials say part of the issue is that traffic is up about 7 percent overall on all of the downtown bridges.

   Mega-concerts are coming to downtown St. Louis after the city's Board of Aldermen on Monday approved a bill that would grant Los Angeles-based ICM Partners and its company, Summer Rocks LLC, excusive access to the Gateway Mall over Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.  

   Mayor Francis Slay, who supports the measure, still must sign it, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that today's 21-4 vote allows the concert producers to begin lining up financial partners and talent for the music festivals.  

   Under the terms of the deal, Summer Rocks would guarantee the city $50,000 per festival in the first 10 years of a possible 20 year agreement. It also would pay up to $400,000 per festival for city services and a percentage of ticket sales.  

   Organizers say they expect to begin with a country music festival on Memorial Day weekend 2015.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois transportation officials say they're adding extra safety precautions to work zones around the state after the speed limit was increased on some rural highways.
 
The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports motorists are being warned of construction projects with extra signs, including speed indicators. The signs are also being placed further away from work zones to give drivers an earlier warning.
 
The Illinois Department of Transportation opposed legislation raising he speed limit from 65 mph to 70 mph on some roads. The higher speed limit went into effect in January.
   
Priscilla Tobias is the department's state safety engineer. She says it takes drivers 470 feet to come to a safe spot if they're traveling 70 mph. The speed limit is lower in work zones.
