There are three bridges that transverse the Des Moines River here in Ottumwa. (Well, four, but one is for pedestrians/bikes)
In March, they closed one of the bridges for maintenance/resurfacing, and if I remember correctly, said it would not reopen until October.
With all the rain the state has received, the work has probably been pushed back at least a month and a half because the river is running over the man-made rock and dirt path they used for equipment to reach certain areas of the bridge.
Combine that with another major intersection in town having been closed since mid-April, and not opening back up until (hopefully) September, it really cramps our ability to get around.
I think your first problem is living in Ottumwa.
