DOT seeks input on Henry County bridge

Aug 31, 2017

AMES — The Iowa Department of Transportation is requesting public input on the replacement of the Iowa 78 bridge located 0.8 mile east of Henry County Road W-66/Oasis Avenue, the project’s off-site detour route, and right of way needs of the project.

The project involves the replacement of the existing 24-by-30-foot I-beam bridge, over a small natural stream, with a twin 12-by-12-by-118-foot reinforced concrete box culvert. During replacement of the bridge, the Iowa 78 bridge will be closed.

Vehicle traffic will be directed to use Henry County roads to junction with Iowa 78 during removal and replacement of the bridge. The detour will follow Oasis Avenue (north and south for 2 miles), 170th Street (east and west for 2 miles), and Racine Avenue (north and south for 2 miles).

For general information or to make a comment regarding the proposed improvements, contact Hector Torres-Cacho, transportation planner, Iowa D.O.T. District 5 Office, 307 W. Briggs, PO Box 587, Fairfield 52556, phone 472-4171 or 800-766-4368, email Hector.Torres-Cacho@iowadot.us.
