ROCKWELL, Iowa - If your commute involves Highway 65 between Mason City and Iowa Falls, be prepared for delays.
This Tuesday, Iowa DOT began microsurfacing the stretch of highway, with only single line traffic alternating directions, which may mean waiting for and following behind a pilot car.
Scott Huntbatch commutes from Mason City to his insurance office in Rockwell, and says that while it may be an inconvenience to some, he notes that crews are moving quickly.
"It hasn't been too bad. If you just slow down, take your time, it hasn't been terribly inconvenient. They've been doing a good job of controlling traffic," Huntbatch says.
If weather cooperates, Iowa DOT expects the project to be wrapped up by June 8th.
