CRESTON, Iowa – March 24, 2023 – If you are driving on Iowa 25 near the interchange with Interstate 80 in coming weeks you may notice some construction work taking place north of I-80.

Beginning at 7 a.m. on Monday, April 3, weather permitting, construction crews will begin removing and replacing the pavement on Iowa 25 north of I-80. This work will require directing traffic around the work zone with a marked detour route using I-80 and Guthrie County Road F-65/While Pole Road (see map).

Help keep everyone on the road safer. 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, you should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
