In a KNIA/KRLS follow-up story, county officials continued discussion – and expressed concern – over the Iowa Department of Transportation moving to close the Mile-Long Bridge on Highway 14 when there are sustained winds exceeding 50 miles an hour.

County Engineer Roger Schletzbaum says another problem is maintenance: when the detour is in effect the new route becomes a state road system, and it’s not sure how the DOT will have the vehicles and time to maintain the route.
