Proposed improvements of U.S. 65 at Story County Road E41 (Lincoln Highway), Story County – June 23, 2016

About the Project

Project Description

Discuss the proposed project to either remove the existing bridge and raise the profile of U.S. 65 to meet the profile of County Road E41 or repair the bridge over U.S. 65. If an at-grade intersection is constructed stop signs will be placed on County Road E41. The profile grade raise of U.S. 65 will require approximately 2,500 ft. of reconstruction.


To accommodate construction, U.S. 65 will be closed and an offsite detour will be utilized.  It is anticipated that the detour will be in place for approximately 120 days. The detour would follow U.S. 30 west from the junction of U.S. 65 and U.S. 30 to County Road S27 for 5 miles. The detour would continue turning north on County Road S27 to County Road E29 for 5 miles then east to the junction of U.S. 65.
