Construction will shut down a well-traveled Black Hawk County bridge for most of the summer, starting Tuesday (June 13, 2017).

The Iowa Department of Transportation (IDOT) is closing the Gilbertville Road bridge over Interstate 380 due to a deck overlay project. IDOT officials said the bridge will be closed until early September, weather permitting. The bridge is about one mile west of Black Hawk County Road V-49 (old Iowa Highway 287/S. Raymond Road) and is located near the Raymar housing addition southeast of Elk Run Heights and east of Eagle Lake in Evansdale.

During construction, a marked detour will be in place. The alternate route will utilize County Road V-49, Dubuque Road (old U.S. Highway 20) and Plaza Drive.
