Supply Chain, Inspection Close Floyd County Bridge
Replacing a Floyd County bridge about 10 miles west of Charles City was already planned for later this year. Closing it down four to six months early was not.
Floyd County Engineer Jacob Page says the bridge, located on Jersey Avenue, about 0.25 miles north of the intersection with 200th Street, was shut down Tuesday.
Page says the bridge was targeted for replacement in July, but even that wasn’t likely to happen given supply chain issues plaguing many road projects across the state.
Page says he’s been working the phones with contractors exploring the possibility of swapping projects to get the bridge replacement bumped up on the list. He says the ultimate goal is to have it replaced in time for fall harvest.
