Wright Bros. Blvd Construction Causing Issues
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - Sections of Wright Brothers Blvd in Cedar Rapids are closed due to planned road construction. However, those closures are now hindering motorists seeking an alternate route due to damaged roadway which has closed nearby U.S. Highway 151 in Fairfax.
The Linn County Board of Supervisors held an emergency meeting to discuss the detour Wednesday.
A new planned detour will use a county road in Johnson County. County leaders say that postponing construction on Wright Brothers Blvd is not possible at this time because pushing it back would create problems when school is back in session.
Survey crews determined that the bridge near the damaged roadway is structurally sound.
The Linn County Board of Supervisors plans to work with the Iowa Department of Transportation to get the Highway 151 roadway repaired as quickly as possible.
