Users of Dubuque Bridge Back Repair Plan

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) --
   Users of the Julien Dubuque Bridge prefer getting repairs to the span completed as quickly as possible, even if it means closing the bridge for more than a week.
   The Transportation Department plan to close the bridge that crosses the Mississippi River at Dubuque next spring to replace deck joints before they fall into disrepair. The agency supports closing the bridge for up to 10 working days to make the repairs but sought public comment about other options that would take longer but allow more use of the bridge during the work.
   Speakers at a hearing Thursday backed the total-closure approach, saying it was better to get the work done quickly.
   Kay Kress, who manages a Dubuque Hy-Vee store, says a longer closure could hurt business from people in Illinois.
