Starting on Monday, April 3, Iowa 76/Main Street in McGregor will be briefly closed for a period of time. This closure is due to a necessary project that will ultimately enhance the infrastructure of the area.
Commuters of the Iowa 76/Main Street road in McGregor should be aware of the upcoming disruption to their regular routes. The road will be closed from Cedar Road to Main Street, with a detour route being made available.
The primary objective of the project is to improve the condition of the roadway. It will involve the installation of a new asphalt surface and the application of anti-skid material. Furthermore, crews will be conducting repairs to the side-slopes of the road, which will also add to the stability of the roadway.
The project will commence on April 3 and is slated to last for approximately two weeks. During this time, Iowa 76/Main Street will remain closed to all vehicular, pedestrian, and bike traffic. The detour route is expected to be in service for the duration of the closure.
The Iowa Department of Transportation (IDOT) is reminding all travelers to drive cautiously through the work zone and to follow the posted detour signs. IDOT also wants to inform the public that delays should be expected, as well as the possibility of temporary road closures as the project progresses.
It is advised that travelers plan ahead and allow for extra time when traveling through the area. The IDOT is working to minimize the disruption to the daily commute and to ensure the safety of those traversing the road.
