Real/ Not Real– Construction Rt 136 bridge across Mississippi at Keokuk?

I’m looking up driving directions on Google Maps and see the dreaded construction symbol at Keokuk, Rt 136 near the bridge that crosses the Mississippi River. Can any local Iowans tell me if the bridge is open or will I need to find an alternate crossing point?
As always, TIA!

There is no indication of a major project in progress in Keokuk at majorprojects.IowaDOT so I think you and the rest of us arriving from the east will be fine. The IowaDOT website appears to be a good starting place for questions like this but of course there is nothing wrong with asking locals for their perspective too, if any are active on this forum to answer.

Looking at the Iowa DOT map it shows a bridge project scheduled for 2020
