Toll Bridge at Decatur Closing
DECATUR - Saturday will be the last day that tolls will be collected on the bridge across the Missouri River between Decatur, Nebraska, and Onawa, Iowa. The Iowa Department of Transportation and Nebraska Department of Roads are working with the Burt County Bridge Commission to transfer jurisdiction and ownership of the toll bridge from the commission to the states. The bridge connects Nebraska Highway 51 and Iowa Highway 175. Once the transfer is complete, the Nebraska Department of Roads will maintain Nebraska Highway 51 and be the lead state on issues related to the bridge, including maintenance and snow removal. The Iowa DOT will have control of Iowa Highway 175.
