The City of Perry is able to utilize funds from the Iowa Department of Transportation to replace the 100 year old bridge over Frog Creek on Willis Avenue. The project has been awarded to Elder Corporation based out of Des Moines. They are planning to begin this work March 12th dependent on weather, they will be closing down Willis Avenue at that point. Their initial schedule shows the work will last until the end of May. As the project start time gets near, the City of Perry will provide more updates for the closing of Willis Avenue. The design of the bridge is meant to preserve the historic architecture of the existing bridge, as well as tie in elements from Perry's downtown streetscape enhancements. Detour routes have been established and will be signed. Maps of detour routes are posted below.
