Highway 75 Between Le Mars and Merrill Under Construction


(Le Mars) — Highway 75 between Le Mars and Merrill is now down to two lanes of travel as the Iowa Department of Transportation conducts some road repairs to the stretch of nearly four miles of roadway. Iowa Department of Transportation
Area Superintendent, Dakin Schultz says the entire construction project is slated for two years, but with the two-lane travel expected to last four months.


Schultz explains the work that is being done to the highway.


Schultz says the intent will be to increase the elevation grade between the northbound lanes and the southbound lanes.


The Iowa D-O-T official says when the junction of Highway 75 and county road C- 38 is closed, the detour will follow Key Avenue near Wells Corporate offices to 200th Street, or the by-pass exit to Business Highway 75.
