U.S. Highway 59 opens today

Thursday, December 2, 2010

After an on-site assessment by officials of the Highway 59 project in Cherokee Wednesday morning, it was decided to delay the opening of the Highway at its Cedar Street intersection for an additional day, with a new anticipated opening of 2 p.m. today (Thursday).

The delay was authorized to insure the safety of the motorists and the construction workers, who will be continuing finish work on both sides of the highway for the next several days.

The City of Cherokee and the Iowa Department of Transportation appreciate the patience of the general public and adjacent businesses in completing this unforeseen, emergency project.
