Public input requested for proposed bridge replacement on Iowa 31 in Cherokee County
The Iowa DOT is requesting public input for a proposed bridge replacement on Iowa 31 over Silver Creek,1 mile West of U.S. 59 in Cherokee County.
The existing 150’ x 26’ steel beam bridge would be replaced with a 172’ 2” x 40’ pretensioned prestressed concrete beam bridge. New bridge approaches would be constructed, and the existing guardrail replaced. Construction of the project is expected to begin in 2025.
Through traffic on Iowa 31 would be detoured using U.S. 59 and Cherokee County Road C-66. For more information, see the website listed below.
