Cerro Gordo county awarded $400,000 for more work on B-20

Cerro Gordo County Supervisors

MASON CITY – The Cerro Gordo County Board of Supervisors met for their regular meeting Tuesday morning at the courthouse.

County Engineer Mary Kelly said that more tests are being done on a stretch of Highway B-20 in the northwest corner of the county where asphalt installed by Heartland Asphalt failed an earlier series of tests.  The county is continuing to work toward a settlement with Heartland to resolve the matter.  The county is withholding about $200,000 in payments to Heartland in the meantime.

Kelly also reported that another stretch of Highway B-20 that has seen its share of accidents will likely be “rehabilitated” after the county applied for traffic safety funding.  A curve on B-20 will be reconstructed to make it safer.  The county was awarded $400,000 toward that project.  The County Engineer’s Office this morning confirmed that the work will be done on B-20 from Eagle Avenue east 2 miles to Grouse Avenue and then south for 1 mile.  Kelly stated there has been at least one fatality and several accidents there in recent memory.
