BOONE, Iowa—Boone County has awarded a contract to Cramer and Associates of Grimes for a bridge deck overlay on a bridge on 130th Street (County Road E-18) over Squaw Creek in Harrison Township, northeast Boone County. Boone County Engineer Robert Kieffer told the Supervisors that originally they considered patching of the bridge deck but as the project was put together is was pretty evident that the most cost effective project would be a deck overlay with associated structure work. The contract that was let was for just over $102,000 which was less than the estimate for the work.
The work begins this week. Last week, those that travel the northeast part of Boone County, would have discovered signage in preparation of the work. The detour will utilize T Avenue (Highway 17), 190th Street (County Road E-26) and Y Avenue. The project has 30 working days for completion.
