Construction on Kalona’s A Avenue bridge are ahead of schedule says one city official. City Administrator Ryan Schlabaugh says the Kalona City Council approved the first payment for the project during their meeting this week. He says the bridge replacement project is about two-thirds of the way completed, and city officials are pleased with the bridge replacement’s progress.
Schlabaugh says the bridge should be completed by the end of August. The Washington County Engineer’s office has provided inspection services for the project in a joint agreement with the city of Kalona. The contractor for the bridge replacement is Iowa Bridge and Culvert of Washington.
