Update: April 15, 2019
Construction began 4/8/19 with detour route signage installed and mobilizing construction equipment. InRoads, LLC, a subcontractor to Croell, Inc., began pavement scarification (milling) operations. The milling of the existing asphalt pavement serves two purposes: 1) reduce height of the pavement structure to ensure there is adequate space for pavement widening and shouldering; 2) the material generated from the milling operations will be used for shouldering post-paving. During the week of 4/15/19, milling operations will continue and longitudinal subdrain installation will commence. Longitudinal subdrain is installed to ensure the pavement subgrade is thoroughly drained and allow any moisture infiltrating between the existing pavement and PCC overlay to leach out. Those living within the project limits will continue to have access to their residents with limited obstruction.
D15: US 59 to Galva
Construction on D15, from US Highway 59 through the City of Galva is scheduled to begin April 8, 2019. Croell, Inc. of New Hampton, Iowa has been awarded the construction contract in the amount of $3,297,382.90. Improvements consist of milling of the existing pavement, patching, installation of longitudinal subdrain, widening of the pavement, resurfacing with P.C. concrete, and granular shoulders. Additionally, work within Galva will include driveway replacements and ADA curb ramp installations.
During construction this section of roadway will be closed and a detour route established. The detour route will follow US Highway 59 south through Holstein, east along US Highway 20, and north along County Highway M25 to Galva. Directional signing will be installed along the detour route. For those living within the project limits, the contractor will conduct work to assure the least possible obstruction to access. However, during paving operations, there may be brief periods of interruption as the pavement cures. Those accessing their residence should exercise extreme caution as numerous construction workers and large equipment will be present.
Construction is scheduled to be completed early July, weather pending.
