Construction is under way on 130th Street (County E-18), west of Story City, to repair the bridge located approximately 1,000 feet east of V Avenue over Squaw Creek. Boone County is in charge of the $102,438 construction project, which was contracted out to Cramer and Associates of Grimes.
The new bridge deck overlay began September 4 and is scheduled to take 30 days to complete. During the construction, 130th Street will be closed at that location. A marked detour route utilizing T Avenue (Highway 17), 190th Street (County Road E-26) and Y Avenue (County Road R-38) will be in place to direct traffic. Every effort will be made to complete the project on time.
