Currently the section of US61 from 130th Street north to the Muscatine county line is in the Iowa Department of Transportationâ??s 5-year plan. Right of way will be purchased; in 2015 there is money to start the grading process for the 5.5 mile section. It will cost 20 million to pave it.
Environmental and field studies are being re-initiated from Burlington to one mile north of IA 78.
The commissioners are working on the next 5-year program; the plan will be approved this August, 2011.
