Weather permitting, beginning on Tuesday, Dec. 8, the eastbound Burlington Street bridge over the Iowa River will be reduced to two lanes to facilitate bridge inspections. It is anticipated that this work will be completed and Burlington Street will be reopened to traffic on Dec. 9. 

Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes during this time period. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling in all construction areas.
