Bridge Work to Cause Overnight Closures of US Highways 61/151

Bridge construction will cause some overnight closures on a busy highway south of Dubuque. Beginning on Monday night, crews from the Iowa Department of Transportation will be working on US Highways 61/151. They’ll be setting bridge beams over the highway as part of construction of the Southwest Arterial. The work will be done overnight, from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM, each night through Friday. The closure will begin at the highway’s intersection with Maquoketa Drive in Key West, and will run to where 61 and 151 split off from each other, just north of the Dubuque Regional Airport. Traffic coming towards Dubuque on Highway 151 won’t be able to exit onto the combined highway during the closures, as the northbound ramp will be closed.
