Portion of US Highway 18 in Charles City to be closed starting Monday
CHARLES CITY — Work on the US Highway 18 resurfacing project in Charles City will result in a road closure starting on Monday.
The Iowa Department of Transportation says the installation of storm sewer and utilities will require closing the road from Clark Street to Floyd County Road T-66. 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 County Road T-66.
Side street crossings within the work zone will remain open where possible when not affected by construction.
Motorists are reminded by the DOT 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.
