Lane closures on Black Hawk Bridge through this Thursday

Those who travel on the Black Hawk (Iowa 9/Wisconsin 82) Bridge over the Mississippi River near Lansing need to be aware of lane closures on the bridge scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, August 22, 23 and 24, weather permitting, to allow crews to install bridge monitoring equipment.

While work is being done, motorists will be assisted through the work zone with flaggers. A lane-width restriction of 10 feet will be in place while work is taking place. The work is related to the upcoming bridge construction project, but not the start of construction.

Help keep everyone on the road safer. 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.
