DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Iowa Department of Transportation has started the rehabilitation project of the South Grandview Bridge over US 52/61/151, and another closure is on the way.

The bridge will be closed Thursday, May 21 from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.  During the closure, northbound and southbound traffic will be detoured onto the Grandview Avenue ramps.  Grandview Avenue traffic will only be allowed to turn right onto the highway.  Exiting highway traffic will be allowed to turn right onto Grandview Avenue.

The project is expected to be finished mid-June.

The South Grandview Bridge has sustained damage over the years due to oversized vehicles hitting the bridge's support beams. Due to the US 52/61/151 improvements completed in recent years, the bridge now meets vertical clearance standards and the Iowa DOT can complete the necessary permanent repairs to the bridge. The project includes removal and replacement of the southernmost beam, bridge deck, sidewalk, and barrier rail.

For questions regarding the South Grandview Bridge Rehabilitation Project, contact Iowa DOT Resident Construction Engineer Hugh Holak at 563-927-2397.
