Beginning Monday a portion of G26 or 190th Street will be closed. The Washington County Engineer’s office announced the closure between Hickory Avenue and Juniper Avenue for a reinforced concrete box culvert replacement project. According to engineer Jacob Thorius this will eliminate the need for a weight restriction on the road and improve infrastructure. Iowa Bridge and Culvert of Washington will be doing the project at a cost of approximately $267,000. Traffic will be detoured using Highway 1, G20 and W38. The project is expected to be finished in early fall.
