CHARITON, Iowa – April 12, 2013 – Construction on the southbound I-35 bridge over the North River, 4 miles north of the Iowa 92/I-35 interchange, will require temporary lane closures beginning Monday, April 15, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Chariton construction office. Traffic will be maintained using the existing north- and southbound lanes. This project is expected to be completed by late fall 2013.
Three other road construction projects in Warren County are also scheduled for 2013.
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.
