The Iowa Department of Transportation is requesting public input for a proposed bridge replacement on U.S. 65 over Bailey Creek, 0.8 miles south of the south junction of Franklin County Road C-13 in Franklin County. The proposed project involves replacing the existing 180’ x 28’ continuous I-beam bridge with a 3 span 204’ x 44’ pretensioned prestressed concrete beam bridge. New bridge approaches will be constructed, and the existing guardrail will be replaced.
Construction of the project is expected to begin in 2022.
Through traffic on U.S. 65 would be detoured using Franklin County roads C-25, S-56, and C-13.
