Drivers will need to find an alternate route through Des Moines’ north side for the next week.

Friday morning, crews shut down the 6th Avenue Bridge over the Des Moines River for a rehabilitation project. 

The bridge will remain closed for a week while they repair the bridge deck. 

Drivers are encouraged to avoid this area. 

The bridge is set to reopen next Friday evening, depending on the weather.
