Gov. Kim Reynolds issued a disaster proclamation for Allamakee and Clayton County in response to a sudden structural failure of a border bridge on February 25. The bridge is located in Lansing, Iowa on Iowa Highway 9 and connects to Wisconsin Highway 35. The proclamation is effective immediately and continues through March 30, 2024.  

The governor's proclamation activates the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Emergency Repair (ER) Program which authorizes emergency relief funding to cover the costs of repair or reconstruction of federal-aid routes that have suffered severe damage as a result of sudden structural failure.
