Keystone Bridge rehab underway


Construction crews from CJ Moyna & Sons of Elkader, in partnership with Taylor Construction from New Vienna, began work on the Keystone Bridge Rehab Project April 4. The bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic from now into the fall. (Photo by Willis Patenaude)

The project will stabilize the Keystone Bridge’s downstream wall, replace the attached sidewalk and repair water damage to the stones from the road way. The scope of the project also extends to replacing the walkway and walkway supports on the bridge, replacing the bridge deck with reinforced concrete and drainage system and reconstruction of the driving surface from Main Street to High Street with concrete. (Photo by Willis Patenaude)

According to city officials, the project should be “substantially completed by Thanksgiving.” It is anticipated the bridge will reopen for vehicular use sometime in October. Pedestrians should always have the ability to cross the bridge. (Photo by Willis Patenaude)

This map, courtesy of the city of Elkader, details how people can navigate the community during bridge construction.
