W. Iowa bridge reopens after extensive repairs

CARSON, Iowa (AP) — State Transportation Department officials say a highway bridge in western Iowa will reopen to traffic this week after extensive repairs.

Officials say the U.S. Highway 59 bridge over Iowa Highway 92 in Carson will open with the completion of work necessary after the span was struck last fall by a truck hauling construction equipment. The crash caused damaged to four bridge beams and required the closure of the bridge.

A detour has been used since the crash.

The normal route will resume when the bridge reopens.
