MASON CITY, Iowa- A major road construction project on highway 122 in Mason City continues this week. While drivers are having to re-learn some routes along the highway, some businesses are working to make sure their customers can still get to their stores.

One of those businesses is Zigles Appliance Center, which is in the thick of the construction project on South Delaware. Both of their entrances on the East side of their property are closed off for construction, but Steve Streshiem says they still have plenty of parking available.

Streshiem is a Sales Manager at Zigles Appliance. He says customers are asking a few questions about getting in to their lot or how to navigate the construction to get to their next destination, but the biggest issue they are seeing are drivers on the road not paying attention when turning. He says the intersection of S. Delaware and 6th Street has always been a dangerous intersection, but with traffic going both East and West on what use to be a one way, he wants customers to really be paying attention.

“Just looking out our windows, we’ve noticed a lot of cars wondering which direction they should be going, which lane they should be in, so we are just keeping our fingers crossed that everyone says safe out there.” he said.
