News release from the Iowa Department of Transportation and Map  

 

Highway 69 Project Update

Manatt’s is sceduled to begin pavement widening and milling in town this week depending on equipment availability. Manatt's would like to get all the work done behind the curb in the next few weeks.

 

PCI is working on the culvert replacements located in the section of construction heading north from Huxley to Ames.  Once culvert replacements are completed (hopefully the week of June 22-26) Manatt’s will start putting choke stone down so they can start paving.

 

Update June 24

Manatt’s is hoping to start placing asphalt widening where they have been preparing near Fareway. Manatt’s has indicated they will be focusing on getting the work done in town before turning to the bigger stretch north of town.

As for north of town, they are working on the last culvert location on the far north end. Once the culvert is completed Manatt's will start rubblizing the pavement and placing the choke stone. Once those operations get far enough ahead of what the paving crew can do they will start putting base down. These plans and the rate of progress will all depend on the weather.

 

 

As of June 2nd, Main Avenue wil be closed to through traffic between Lynwood and Preston.  Detour from Highway 69 will be Lynwood to 5th Avenue where vehicles can then go east to any available street to continue down Main Ave.   Vehicles heading north on Main Avenue can take 5th Avenue to Lynwood and out to the highway.

PrairieFest 2015 is scheduled to begin Friday, August 28 and end on Sunday, August 30. Be sure to check out the PrairieFest website at www.huxleyprairiefest.comwww.huxleyprairiefest.com in the coming months for all the fun details!
