Lane closures on the Iowa 150 bridge over the Volga River in Fayette County begin on Monday, April 8

NEW HAMPTON, Iowa – March 29, 2024 – If you drive on the Iowa 150 bridge, 0.2 miles north of Iowa 93, you need to be aware of an upcoming project that may impact your trip.

Beginning on Monday, April 8 until late July, weather permitting, crews will close one lane of the bridge so bridge deck overlay work can be done. Both lanes will be worked on in separate stages according to the Iowa DOT’s New Hampton construction office.

Temporary traffic signals will be in place to help direct you through the work zone. Lane-width restriction signs will be in place in advance of the work zone to direct larger vehicles to alternate routes.

Help keep everyone on the road safer. Drive with caution, obey the posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, you should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
