USH 18/151 Iowa County – Weekly Construction Update for week of November 18th

The snow and cold weather continue to delay work on USH 18.  Contractors have changed the schedule around to perform aggregate shoulder and guard rail and wait for some warmer temperatures to finish paving. 

For the week of November 18th, anticipated work includes:

Work in the eastbound lanes will shift daily depending on the temperatures and what work can be performed:

  • Left/passing lane will close for asphalt paving operations, temporary pavement marking.  This is anticipated Monday through Thursday
  • All traffic lanes will be opened by noon on Friday

NOTE that disruption will occur at side roads and median crossovers/intersections during surface paving.  Traffic looking to cross may be restricted for 10-15 minutes until the roller has passed.

The speed limit is reduced to 55mph throughout the work zone both eastbound and westbound
