MASON CITY | A deteriorating bridge on County Road S18 north of Clear Lake will be replaced in 2019.
On Monday, the Cerro Gordo County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the final plans for bridge replacement on S18 over Willow Creek.
County Engineer Mary Kelly said the current bridge, which is a 25-ton concrete channel bridge that’s swelling, rusty and rotting, will be replaced by a twin 10-by-7 cast-in-place culvert.
The project will be let through the Iowa Department of Transportation in January 2019. It’s estimated to cost $300,000, which Kelly said will be funded through the state’s federal aid swap program.
