Repairs Begin on Dubuque Bridge

  • Photo

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Repair work has begun on the Julien Dubuque Bridge in preparation for a larger project that will close the bridge for 10 days later this month.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports that work underneath the bridge has already begun, including repairs to concrete, piers and fenders that protect the bridge from boat strikes.

Iowa Department of Transportation construction engineer Hugh Holak says work planned for later in the month should not interfere with boat or barge traffic on the Mississippi River.

The bridge is set to close on July 21 and reopen Aug. 1.

During the closure, motorists wanting to cross into East Dubuque will have to take the Iowa-Wisconsin bridge and loop down into Illinois.
