Maintenance Work Under Jefferson St. Viaduct

OTTUMWA-Maintenance work has begun on the northern piers of the Jefferson Street Viaduct.   The contractor is sandblasting and has covered several areas with large tarps.  Traffic on Rushing Way, the alley that runs under the north end of the bridge, is blocked at the bridge.   Drivers may still access the alley from either end and the parking lot area is open.
