The Iowa Department of Transportation will soon be altering a small portion of the highway striping on Highway 92 in Washington. The highway was recently changed from a four lane road to a two lane road with a shared turn lane in the middle.  Near the new Middle School, one dedicated turn lane is making things difficult for truck traffic.  City Administrator Brent Hinson says that the D-O-T plans to re-stripe the street from South Iowa to South Second while going south.  That way trucks turning onto West Madison from 2nd Avenue have more space without conflicting with vehicles in the turn lane.
