Blacktop shoulders

--roadwork-63Iowa Dept. of Transportation took three to four days to put two-foot wide blacktopped shoulders on both sides of Highway 63 between Lime Springs Travel Plaza and Chester. Rumble strips were also added. The edge of the existing pavement was getting washed out, making a drop off of several inches between the road and shoulder.

Further into Minnesota, Highway 63 north of Spring Valley is detoured, starting May 19. One way to skip the detour is to take County 1 (go straight at Dairy Queen in Spring Valley).
