Road construction work on U.S. 61 and 180th Street in Lee County, just south of Weaver, begins Friday, Sept. 27, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation's Mount Pleasant construction office.

The road construction work includes extending the left-turn lane for southbound U.S. 61, constructing a right-turn lane for northbound U.S. 61, and paving approximately 120 feet of 180th Street.

The project is expected to be completed by mid-October.
