Highway 8 closes for culvert replacement

Beginning Monday, May 2, drivers along Iowa Highway 8 in Tama County’s Clark Township encountered a road closure between the junction with Iowa Highway 21 west of Dysart and county road V18 east of Traer.

Construction is expected to last into July of this year with through traffic being detoured north along Iowa Highway 21, west along county road D65 toward Buckingham and then south on U.S. 63 towards Traer.
