NEW HAMPTON, Iowa – May 26, 2020 – The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will be completing a project to repair overflow bridges in the marsh area on WIS 82 on the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi River which will require temporarily closing the Iowa 9 (Black Hawk) bridge over the Mississippi River at Lansing, Iowa beginning Friday, June 5, until Monday, June 15, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s New Hampton construction office.
During this closure, the Iowa DOT will replace two deck panels on the Iowa side of the bridge. Electronic message signs will be in place along state highway routes in both Iowa and Wisconsin prior and during the road and bridge closure to alert motorists.
The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey the posted speed limit and other signs in the work area and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
