[ARCHIVED] Road closure on US Hwy 18 in Charles City

US Hwy 18 road closure beginning on Monday, June 28

Work on the U.S.18 resurfacing project in Charles City will require a road closure starting on Monday, June 28. Installation of storm sewer and utilities will require closing the road from Clark Street to Floyd County Road T-66, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s New Hampton construction office.  


During this phase of the project, motorists will be detoured around the work zone by taking Clark Street to Floyd County Road B-57 and then onto Floyd County Road T-66. Side street crossings within the work zone will remain open where possible when not affected by construction.


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.
