U.S. 69 Bridge Replacement, Wright County

About the Project

Project description

The Iowa Department of Transportation is requesting public input for a proposed bridge replacement on U.S. 69 over Drainage Ditch 5 near Galt, approximately 3.7 miles south of Iowa 3, in Wright County.

The proposed project involves replacing the existing 32’ x 44’ single span I-beam bridge with a 12’ x 10’ reinforced concrete box culvert. This project will also include removal of the bridge guardrails and bridge rails, as well as a 3” hot mix asphalt (HMA) overlay.

Construction of the project is expected to begin in 2023.

U.S. 69 will remain open to traffic with lane closures as necessary during construction.
