Construction on the new Avenue of the Saints interchange at Floyd is scheduled to resume today.
The Iowa DOT’s Mason City Office says bridge and road construction work at the intersection of U.S. Highways 18 and 218 in Floyd will require closing the inside lanes of the eastbound and westbound on Highway 18 from Monday, April 4, until Friday, April 15, for patchwork, which the DOT’s Pete Hjelmstad says is weather dependent.
If that patchwork goes as planned, Hjelmstad says the intersection will then undergo a traffic change on Monday, April 18th.
Hjelmstad says this traffic pattern will continue until November when eastbound traffic moves to the new eastbound lanes/bridge. A temporary traffic signal will also be installed at the current intersection at Floyd.
