A project to replace the bridge over Prairie Creek on Iowa 17, 0.9 miles north of Wright County Road C-26, requires closing the roadway to traffic beginning on Monday, May 16, until October 20, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Mason City construction office.

During this project, motorists will be detoured around the work zone by using Wright County roads C-26, P-66, C-20, and Iowa 17 (see map).
