Prairie Street overpass reopens to traffic KVOE News file photo

On Monday, KVOE News told you the Prairie Street overpass was close to reopening after ongoing repairs this summer. The bridge re-opened to traffic shortly before noon Tuesday.


The overpass had been shut down since late June for needed maintenance, according to County Engineer Chip Woods. Approaches were replaced, the deck was repaired and an epoxy sealant was applied over the last two months for the 30-year-old bridge.

This ends a significant detour for local drivers, who had to go east to the downtown underpasses to get around the work zone.
