Officials Considering Closing Dangerous Jones County Intersection

Officials are considering closing an intersection in Jones County.

The Jones County Board of Supervisors and Anamosa City Council have recently been discussing safety concerns at the intersection of Highway 151 and Old Dubuque Road.

It has been the site of several deadly accidents over the years, most recently claiming the life of Shelli Gray of Hopkinton last month.

Officials are considering possibly closing and vacating the county and city roads on both sides of the intersection.

A joint public hearing on the issue has been scheduled for Thursday, January 9th at 7 pm at the Anamosa City Council meeting.
