U. S. 18 Near Wesley to Close Tuesday

A project to replace a roadway pipe under U.S. 18 just east of the Kossuth County Road R-14 (240th Street) intersection will require U.S. 18 traffic to utilize a detour beginning on Tuesday, July 5, until July 19, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Mason City construction office.

During this project, motorists will be detoured around the work zone by traveling south for approximately 1.1 miles on Kossuth County Road P-60 to Kossuth County Road B-40, east on Kossuth County Road B-40 for approximately 6 miles to Iowa Highway 17, then approximately 2.1 miles north on Iowa Highway 17 to U.S. 18.

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.
