CRESTON, Iowa – July 8, 2011 – Road construction work will reduce Iowa 2 to one lane
between Taylor County Road N-26 (near New Market) and Iowa 148 (near Bedford)
beginning Tuesday, July 12, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of
Transportation’s (DOT) Creston construction office.
Flaggers and a pilot car will be used to control traffic during the closure. The
roadway will return to normal traffic patterns when workers are not present. This
portion of the project is expected to be completed by late July.
The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey 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.
