Iowa Highway 56 Work


NEW HAMPTON, Iowa – March 21, 2024 – If you drive on Iowa 56 between West Union and Elkader in Fayette and Clayton counties you need to be aware of an upcoming asphalt resurfacing project that may impact your trip.

Beginning on Wednesday, April 3, until late July, weather permitting, crews will need to intermittently close one lane so resurfacing work can take place. Flaggers and pilot cars will assist you through the work zone to keep traffic moving. Help keep everyone on the road safer. 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, you should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
