Secondary Roads

Weather permitting, closure of Herbert Hoover Highway NE/F44 in Johnson County and Main Street in West Branch at its intersection with Johnson Cedar Road will begin on Monday, April 3, 2023. Closing each road is required to complete construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Herbert Hoover Highway and Johnson Cedar Road.

Anderson Bogert Engineers and Surveyors of Cedar Rapids is providing construction inspection and administration services and Streb Construction Co. Inc. of Iowa City is the general contractor. Weather permitting, opening the roundabout is anticipated by early August 2023.

A posted detour for Herbert Hoover Highway NE/F44 will utilize Interstate 80 and S. Downey Street, while a posted detour for Johnson Cedar Road will utilize Dawson Drive.
