Those trying to get around Windsor Heights overnight this week may have to change their route.

The Iowa Department of Transportation says 73rd Street/8th Street will be closed from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. each night through Friday to allow construction crews to remove a bridge deck on the westbound I-235 bridge over the street.

The work is part of the DOT’s plan to add an extra lane to westbound I-235 between the 63rd Street interchange and the 73rd Street/8th Street interchange. The DOT hopes it will help ease traffic congestion in the area.

The westbound exit ramp at the 73rd Street interchange is expected to remain closed until Monday, October 7th.
