Weather permitting, beginning on Friday, July 10, U.S. Highway 6 will be reduced to one lane of traffic in the northbound direction, from Newton Road/Iowa Avenue to the VA Hospital. This lane reduction is necessary to remove excess dirt from behind the curb. It is anticipated the work will be completed by the end of the day on Friday, July 10. 

Motorists are to take note of this construction and to allow extra travel time as delays may occur. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling through all construction areas.
