Polk County bridge replacement Iowa 17

FHWA # 040730 was constructed in 1959 and carries Iowa 17 over the Des Moines River.  The 988’ x 36’ steel girder bridge carries an average of 5,200 vehicles daily across six spans.  Currently, the concrete deck is classified as structurally deficient, meaning that it should be monitored and/or repaired. 

The deck was overlaid with dense concrete in 1977 and is nearing the end of its service life. A project for replacing the deck is scheduled for letting on Feb. 16, 2010. This project will remove the existing concrete deck and replace it with a new one supported by the existing steel girders. 

The project is estimated to cost $1,912,000.
