Intermittent lane closures on Iowa 150 between West Union and the Fayette/Winneshiek County line begin on Monday, April 15

NEW HAMPTON, Iowa – March 21, 2024 – If you drive on Iowa 150 from West Union to the Fayette/Winneshiek County line you need to be aware of an upcoming asphalt resurfacing project that may impact your trip.

Beginning on Monday, April 15, until early July, weather permitting, crews will need to intermittently close one lane so resurfacing work can take place. Flaggers and pilot cars will assist you through the work zone to keep traffic moving.

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.

The latest traveler information is available anytime through our 511 system. Visit; call 511 (within Iowa) or 800-288-1047 (nationwide); stay connected with 511 on Facebook or Twitter (find links at; or download the free app to your mobile device.
