COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa – March 31, 2009 – The replacement of two bridges on Iowa 92 west of Treynor will detour traffic starting Wednesday, April 8, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Council Bluffs construction office.
Work associated with this project will include replacing one bridge .1 miles west of Treynor and another 2.7 miles west of Treynor. The bridges were originally constructed in 1952. Hawkins Construction Co. of Omaha is the prime contractor for the $2.4 million project.
While the project is in process, a marked detour will route traffic north on Pottawattamie County Road L-55 to U.S. 6 then west on U.S. 6 to I-80 then southwest on I-80 back to Iowa 92.
The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles and wear seat belts.
