If your route to Iola, takes you South on HWY 75 and east on HWY 54 through Yates Center you will experience a detour, just east of Yates Center. There is a bridge that is being worked on for the next 8 months. There is a marked detour that you can take, but it does take you aways south and you will want to plan for your trip to take 20-30 minutes longer then what MapQuest or your GPS suggests.
