NEW HAMPTON, Iowa – April 21, 2017 – The second stage of a two-year reconstruction project on U.S. 63 in Waterloo, which will affect traffic patterns, pedestrian usage, and business and residential access begins Monday morning, May 1, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s New Hampton construction office.
The closest Americans with Disability Act compliant pedestrian crossing is on Park Avenue, which is three blocks east of the project site, will remain open and will be the only ADA-accessible pedestrian river crossing open within a five-block area.
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.
