Southboard Hwy. 61 to close Monday in Louisa County

MOUNT PLEASANT, Iowa – Oct. 8, 2019 – Road construction on U.S. 61 in Louisa County will require closing the southbound lane to traffic for about two miles just south of Iowa 92, near Grandview, beginning at 6 a.m. Monday, Oct. 14, until Friday, Oct. 18, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Mount Pleasant construction office.

Motorists will be directed to use an official 50-mile marked detour (see map) and will follow Iowa 92 (east and west for about 17.5 miles), U.S. 218/Iowa 27 (north and south for about 12 miles), and Iowa 78 (east and west about 20.5 miles). The detour will be in place for approximately 5 days, weather permitting. Local traffic will have access to U.S. 61 except for the approximate two-mile southbound lane closure starting at U.S. 61 (exit 74) near Grandview, to just north of 130th Street near mile marker 72.15.
