MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa – May 11, 2022 – An asphalt resurfacing project on U.S. 63 from the intersection of Iowa 96 to Traer will require closing U.S. 63, from 7 a.m. Monday, May 23, until Fall 2022, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Marshalltown construction office.
