Input Requested for Bridge Replacement on U. S. 69 in Wright County

The Iowa Department of Transportation is requesting public input for a proposed bridge replacement on U.S. 69 over Drainage Ditch 5 near Galt, approximately 3.7 miles south of Iowa 3, in Wright County.

The proposed project involves replacing the existing 32’ x 44’ single span I-beam bridge with a 12’ x 10’ reinforced concrete box culvert.  This project will also include removal of the bridge guardrails and bridge rails, as well as a 3” hot mix asphalt (HMA) overlay.

Construction of the project is expected to begin in 2023.

U,S, 69 will remain open to traffic with lane closures as necessary during construction. For more information, see the website listed below.
