Expect some possible delays starting Monday when driving between Freeport and Decorah.
The Iowa Department of Transportation has awarded a contract worth $526,357.19 to Wicks Construction of Decorah to replace the decking on the Highway 9 bridge over Trout Run Creek. The project will start Monday.
Crews will do the work in stages, closing two lanes at a time and funneling traffic onto the other two lanes (one westbound, one eastbound). The two northernmost lanes of the four-lane highway will be closed first. When those lanes are finished, the process will be reversed. Crews will grind off the existing layer of pavement and lay down a thin 2-inch layer of pavement.
The work will continue into October.
