Fort Dodge road work will interrupt traffic today

Beginning today at approximately 4 a.m., weather permitting, traffic on Fifth Avenue South from South 12th Street to South 15th Street will be reduced to one lane in both directions.

All traffic will be shifted to the north portion of the road.

The side streets of South 13th Street and South 14th Street will be blocked, therefore traffic will not be allowed on or off of Fifth Avenue South at the intersections of South 13th Street and South 14th Street.

Speed limits may be reduced and enforced. Motorists are urged to use an alternate route and caution in the area. Stay alert to traffic control, signage, and emergency vehicles.

This closure is part of the 2018 PCC Patch Project. Additional closures may be issued or occur throughout the summer as the project progresses.
