Northwest Iowa — If you travel to Sioux City, the Iowa Department of Transportation wants you to know about some construction that is scheduled to begin April 1st.
Reconstruction work on Highway 75 between Plymouth County Road C-38 near Sioux City, and Plymouth County Road C-60 near Hinton, will require shifting traffic into a head-to-head pattern in the southbound lanes to accommodate reconstruction of the northbound lanes beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, April 1, until Thursday, Oct. 3, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s District 3 Office.
Left turns will be prohibited through the work zone during the construction. Peterson Contractors, Inc. was awarded the $8.8 million contract for 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.
