The project consists of the replacement of the bridge located on Iowa 92 over Little Silver Creek in Pottawattamie County, Iowa. The existing 150' x 28' continuous concrete beam bridge (FHWA #043820) was constructed in 1953 and is currently classified as structurally deficient.
The bridge replacement is intended to increase the structural capacity of the bridge, improve roadway conditions, and enhance safety by providing a wider roadway.The replacement structure is a three-span, 234' x 44' modular rolled steel beam bridge.
