POSTED ON: MAY 01, 2020
NEW HAMPTON, Iowa – May 1, 2020 – A project to resurface and add asphalt shoulders to Iowa 9 between 10th Avenue Northwest in Waukon and South Road in Lansing will require lane closures with traffic being directed by a pilot car and flaggers beginning on Monday, May 4, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s New Hampton construction office.
Replacement of culverts from the north city limits of Waukon to Allamakee County Road A-44 on Iowa 9 will require a full closure with a marked detour route beginning on Monday, May 11 until early June. During the closure, motorists will be detoured around the work zone using Iowa 9, Ninth Street, Iowa 76, and Allamakee County Road A-44.
The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey the posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
