Iowa 2 roadwork set to begin Monday, Aug. 3

Hamburg Reporter

A milling and resurfacing project on Iowa 2 between Fremont County Road L-44 to U.S. 275 in Fremont County will begin Monday, Aug. 3, and be completed by early September, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Council Bluffs construction office.

The milling work will take approximately one week to complete. Once the milling work is completed, workers will make repairs along the centerline and then resurfacing work will begin. Traffic will be controlled by flaggers and a pilot car. Motorists should expect some delays.

Western Engineering is the prime contractor of this project.

The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to 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, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
