OTTUMWA – A day after the Market Street Bridge will close for winter prep, the Jefferson Street Viaduct will undergo the same procedure.

The viaduct will be closed Thursday for the routine maintenance of applying linseed oil on the roadway. Linseed oil is applied to the bridge deck every fall as a sealant, protecting the surface from corrosive ice control materials used each winter. The work will be postponed if weather conditions look unfavorable for the work.

The viaduct will be re-opened for traffic by the end of the day. Motorists should plan ahead to find an alternate route during the closure.

Residents with questions about this project can call the Public Works Department at 641-684-2180
