The Cedar Wapsi Road (C57) Bridge replacement project over the Cedar River is progressing nicely. Contractors will soon change the traffic patterns in the area to one lane traffic with traffic signals.  Effective Friday, October 23, 2020, the Washington Union Boat Ramp area will be closed to ALL users until further notice.  

As part of the bridge replacement project, upgrades will be made to the Washington Union Boat Ramp area including parking lot and entrance lane grading and construction of a underpass walkway under the new bridge for easy fishing access to the river bank on either side of the bridge.  

Alternative boat ramps are available at Black Hawk Park and along the West Fork of the Cedar River in Finchford.  

Thank You all for your patience and cooperation as Black Hawk County works to improve the critical transportation infrastructure.
