Iowa DOT Taking Public Comments on Proposed Clay County Bridge Replacement Project

The Iowa Department of Transportation is accepting public comments on a proposed bridge replacement project in Clay County.

The bridge replacement will be on Highway 18 over Stoney Creek between Everly and Spencer. The new bridge would be 140 feet long and 44 feet wide, and would replace the existing 76 by 30 foot bridge that was built in 1957.

Construction is scheduled to start in the spring of 2026 and be completed in the fall of 2026. Highway 18 will be detoured during construction. The proposed detour is on Clay County roads M-27, B-24, M-38, and 360th Street.

Comments or questions on the proposed project can be submitted on the Iowa Department of Transportation website by Monday, June 24th.

Questions about the project can be directed to
