MASON CITY – Work on the Iowa 122 reconstruction project from South Monroe to South Carolina avenues in Mason City is nearing completion. At 5 p.m. on Friday night, Nov. 15, weather permitting, crews will be shifting traffic, currently in a head-to-head traffic pattern in the westbound lanes, onto the newly reconstructed eastbound lanes, returning traffic to normal patterns, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s District 2 Office.

Drivers should still be aware of temporary lane closures as the contractor wraps up the project for this season. Stop signs, which were removed at Delaware, Jefferson, and Pennsylvania avenues during the closure of Sixth Street, will be installed once again on side streets crossing Sixth Street.

The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey the posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
