Road Work and Detour in Worthington Area Starts Monday

Road work will begin Monday in the Worthington area.

The Iowa DOT says they’ll be detouring traffic north and south of Worthington as crews work on a hot-mix asphalt pavement replacement project on Highway 136.

During this project, local access will be maintained within the Worthington city limits. Traffic north and south of Worthington along Highway 136 will be detoured around the work zone using Highway 151, Highway 20 and Highway 38.

The detour will go into place around 8 am Monday.

The work should take about a week to complete. The DOT says they hope to have the project wrapped up by next Monday, October 16th if the weather cooperates.
