OTTUMWA — The Jefferson Street Bridge will close Monday morning for an inspection.
The inspection is a thorough look at the bridge’s structural condition, and will take the majority of the week. It is required by the Iowa Department of Transportation and is necessary to keep the city in compliance with both state regulations and funding qualifications.
The closure will take place at about 9 a.m. Monday. The portion of Mill Street under the bridge will be closed briefly while crews work overhead.
