Officials To Close Bridge Linking Iowa, Illinois

  • Photo

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) Authorities are preparing to temporarily close down a bridge that connects Iowa with Illinois.

The Telegraph Herald reports the Julien Dubuque Bridge is scheduled to close for repairs beginning Monday. It is set to be completed on July 31.

The bridge connects Dubuque and East Dubuque, Illinois. Iowa drivers will be detoured across the Dubuque-Wisconsin bridge to then enter Illinois. The pedestrian and bike trail on the bridge will remain open during construction.

Work on the structure will involve replacing deck joints, removing a 6-foot span of the bridge and sealing the barrier rail. The newspaper reports residents and business are bracing for expected traffic delays, lost sales and other costs.
