A November finish is anticipated for the work on Highway 1. The road is being resurfaced from Washington to Iowa City. One aspect of the project north of Highway 22 is the addition of wider shoulders. Instead of the standard 4 foot paved shoulder, Highway 1 will have 9 foot shoulders from Kalona to Hazelwood Avenue. According to Jason Huddle, with the Iowa Department of Transportation, they made this decision to accommodate the buggies used by that area’s Amish community.
