A-23 opens this week

Finishing touches were put on A-23 this week. Monday, the concrete was being power washed so pavement markings could be applied. Tentatively, by Friday the road was to be open to all traffic. The road has been closed since the end of July.

The bid on the project was over $3.3 million. In 1983, the road between Lime Springs and Cresco received a three-inch asphalt resurface at a cost of $805,858. In 1991 a seal coat was put on the road from Lime Springs to Granger turnoff and in 2001 a microsurface of three-quarter inch high oil content asphalt was applied.

County Engineer Nick Rissman adds, “We still will have work to complete in Lime Springs after the road is open. We will be backfilling along the slab as well as placing sidewalk ramps from the new slab to the existing sidewalks.
