Motorists driving on the west side of Oelwein, may be disappointed to find out that the viaduct on West Charles Street is still closed.


The viaduct was blocked off to traffic beginning March 21st, with the hope it would reopen in 30 days.

According to the Oelwein City Hall, as with a lot of construction work, there have been some delays, pushing back the opening date another 2 weeks, to around May 8th.

Workers are installing some new water lines, and other road work inside the viaduct.

One of the alternate routes for drivers is 4th Street SW.
