The newly-widened stretch of U.S. Highway 20 crosses over U.S. Highway 71 north of Early, IA
EARLY, Iowa (KTIV) -
An Iowa road project is one step closer to completion.
Wednesday, the ribbon was cut, near Early, Iowa, on a 26-mile stretch of Highway 20 between Early and Rockwell City
Governor Terry Branstad, Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds, and Iowa DOT Director Paul Trombino were there for the occasion.
Crews have worked to expand the road from two to four lanes since the 1960s.
Now, just over 40 miles between Early and Moville are left.
"From business to state to local to federal, it was really a collaboration of so many individuals that just were very diligent in make sure that they saw this happen," said Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds.
But there's one obstacle to complete, the last few miles funding.
We'll have more on this story coming up on KTIV News Channel 4 at six.
