R16 Construction Begins
Construction on R16 south of Highway 6 has begun. Flynn Company from Dubuque, IA will be the prime contractor for the construction project. They will have two main subcontractors; J&K Contracting will handle the installation of all the roadway and entrance culverts, and C.J. Moyna & Sons will handle the pavement removal and grading.
J&K Contracting will begin replacing the roadway culverts today. They will begin at Highway 6 and work their way south. While they are replacing a culvert, local traffic will not be able to get through. Once the culvert is replaced, rock will be placed over the culvert to allow temporary access.
