LONE TREE, Iowa – Sept. 1, 2017 – During the week of September 11, signs and warning devices (rumble panels) will be installed to make the Iowa 22 and Johnson County Road X-14 (Wapsi Avenue Southeast) intersection a permanent four-way stop, according the Iowa Department of Transportation’s District 5 Office in Fairfield.
Portable dynamic message signs (PDMS) will be deployed by the Iowa DOT to alert drivers to use caution and prepare to stop at the new four-way-stop.
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.
