Barge hits bridge over river between Wis., Iowa

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) — A bridge over the Mississippi River between Iowa and Wisconsin has been closed after being struck by a barge.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the Highway 82 bridge at Lansing, Iowa, will remain closed indefinitely, at least until an inspection can be completed.

Motorists are advised to cross the river at either La Crosse or Prairie du Chien.

It’s not clear why the barge hit the bridge Saturday evening.
