Notice of highway corridor preservation renewal for proposed U.S. 63 northwest Oskaloosa bypass, Mahaska County

About the Project

Project description

The Iowa Department of Transportation is providing public notice of the corridor preservation for the proposed U.S. 63 northwest bypass route, which would connect U.S. 63 north of the Oskaloosa city limits to a new interchange at Iowa 163 west of Oskaloosa in Mahaska County.

Width of the corridor preservation zone varies depending upon location within the corridor. Corridor preservation is a tool the Iowa DOT uses to preserve land for future highway needs. When the city or county notifies the DOT of proposed development within the corridor preservation area it allows the DOT a chance to review for conflicts with the right-of-way needed for the future highway. It does not restrict development in any way.

The Iowa DOT implemented corridor preservation for this project in September 2018, and it is being renewed September 21, 2021. It is the intent of the Iowa DOT to continue to utilize corridor preservation for this project. The Iowa DOT may need to acquire additional right of way or property rights within this designated area.

This notice shall be valid for a period of three years from the date of publication of the notification (Sept. 21, 2021), and may be refiled by the Iowa DOT every three years.
