Decatur bridge now open for use

Good news for travelers — the Decatur Bridge over the Missouri River was scheduled to be open to traffic 14 days ahead of schedule on Monday, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT). 

Weather permitting, the bridge was to be opened to one lane of traffic controlled by flagging or temporary traffic signals.  Width restrictions will be in place. Major work included structural rehabilitation, bridge cleaning and painting.

The early opening is attributed to the teamwork, efficiency and innovative scheduling of the prime contractor, Cramer & Associates of Grimes, Iowa, and subcontractor MPG of Sarasota, Florida, working in partnership with NDOT and their engineering firm HDR who provided the bridge design, inspection and administration.

NDOT wished to thank the City of Decatur for their support, citizens of Decatur and Onawa, Iowa and the users of the Decatur Bridge for their patience and understanding.

Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously through construction zones and allow additional travel time.
