Bridge construction will close a stretch of a busy highway south of Dubuque overnight for several nights next week.
U.S. 61/151 will be closed from U.S. 151 to Maquoketa Drive in Key West from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly beginning Monday, Jan. 14. The closures will continue until 5 a.m., Friday, January 18.
The U.S. 151 ramp to U.S. 61 north will also be shut during the closures.
The detour route will be U.S. 151 to Military Road to Maquoketa Drive.
The closures are necessary to set bridge beams over the highway as part of the Southwest Arterial project.
