O’Brien County Bridge Replacement Project Gets Started Next Week

A bridge replacement project is getting underway next week in O’Brien County.

The work will be done on the bridge on Highway 10 west of Paullina starting today (Mon) until November 16th, weather permitting. Drivers on Highway 10 will be detoured around the work zone using Highway 143 and county roads B-62 and L-48. The Iowa DOT urges citizens to 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.

The latest traveler information is available anytime through the state’s 511 system.
