Bridge West of Donnellson Scheduled to Open

The bridge located at Sugar Creek, 1.4 miles west of Donnellson in Lee County is scheduled to open Wednesday, December 15th, weather permitting. With the first phase to replace bridges on Iowa 2 completed, between Farmington and Donnellson, Iowa 2 will be open to traffic in both directions during the Winter.

However, in Spring 2022, the next phase to microsurface Iowa 2, between Donnellson and Farmington, will require alternating lane closures and using a pilot car for traffic control.

The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey the posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
