Those pieces of wood are just to support human bodies as they work on building or rehabilitating the bridge deck/superstructure.  They bridge the gap between flanges with pieces of wood, and sometimes plywood added on top of those, then stand on top of them as they paint/saw/rebar etc. They have no real impact on the bridge's structural integrity, so the construction workers often just forget about them and leave some or all of them there.

The 53 Bridge is getting a redecking and widening this summer.

That pushes the 6-laning of I-57 between Mt Vernon and Marion from West Frankfort (which was the previous segment) up to the southern end of Rend Lake/just north of Benton

Maybe I-57 really will ultimately become a 6-lane Freeway between I-24 and I-64

With this project and the others mentioned here, the only remaining 6-lane gap in that section will be south of Marion to I-24.
