Weight Embargo - Winslow Road bridge over Indian Creek
A weight embargo has been placed on the Winslow Road bridge that crosses Indian Creek.
In compliance with Iowa Department of Transportation requirements, bridges in Marion are inspected every other year. Following the routine inspections in 2016, the City received a notification that the southern-most bridge along Winslow Road over Indian Creek is deficient.
Signs have been posted to notify drivers of the 28-Ton and 40-Ton weight limits. Drivers of any vehicles exceeding these weight limits should find an alternate route.
The City of Marion Engineering Department is in the process of evaluating the options for a more permanent solution.
Per Fire Chief Krebill, there is no concern with Marion's fire truck fleet being over the posted limits.
This is the weight limit sign (r12-5) signifying the different weight restrictions that have been placed on the Winslow Road bridge over Indian Creek. This weight restriction applies to all vehicles.
