NEW HAMPTON, Iowa – April 21, 2017 – A hot-mix asphalt project that started last year will resume to complete the final asphalt layer, placement of shoulder rock, and pavement markings on U.S. 20 near Jesup.

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.
