Update on Mississippi River Bridge at Lansing Closure

On Sunday, Feb. 25, the Iowa Department of Transportation was alerted to unexpected movement on the existing Mississippi River Bridge connecting Iowa Highway 9 in Lansing, Iowa to Wisconsin Highway 82 in rural Crawford County, Wisconsin. The bridge was closed as a result of this discovery.
After thoroughly inspecting the bridge, engineers have determined there has been movement in two existing bridge piers near the work zone.
Work is already in progress to stabilize the two impacted piers so we can reopen the bridge as quickly as possible. However, work is expected to take up to two months. The bridge will not be reopened until it is deemed safe.
The nearest bridges for vehicle traffic to cross the Mississippi River are at LaCrescent, Minnesota/Lacrosse, Wisconsin, or Marquette, Iowa/Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.
They are currently working on alternative transportation options for those who rely on the bridge.

Brief updates will be posted to the website and you can sign up to receive more detailed updates, as well.
