The Iowa Department of Transportation is requesting public input for the proposed replacement of the southbound Iowa 28 bridge over the Raccoon River, 3.7 miles north of Iowa 5, in Polk County. The project includes replacing the existing 600 x 28 feet continuous girder bridge with a 626 x 38 feet pretensioned prestressed concrete beam bridge with a 10 foot sidewalk on the west side of the bridge.
Construction of the project is expected to begin in 2022.
Through traffic on Iowa 28 will be maintained by using crossovers.
