Good news for anyone that drives south of Perry… County Road P-58 has re-opened.

The road closed in June so that crews could remove and replace the North Raccoon River bridge and reconstruct 3.6 miles of pavement.

The project cost the county more than $3 million and is the largest transportation infrastructure investment Dallas County has made in more than two decades. Funding came from state and federal monies and no local tax dollars were used.

The new bridge is slightly longer and wider, which should make passing over the river easier for motorists.  The pavement structure was also improved as 6” of pavement was replaced with a new 8” concrete slab.

Godberson-Smith Construction out of Ida Grove was the project’s primary contractor.
