City looking to add missing sidewalks to improve design, safety

Charles City, Iowa – The Iowa Department of Transportation and the City of Charles City have plans to reconstruct part of Highway 18 just north of the Cedar River.

City Administrator Steve Diers tells North Iowa News the state intended to do an overlay project but the 1930’s road requires more work.


There’s missing sidewalk along Casey’s and Hy-Vee gas, which the city is looking to fix.

Diers says there are many areas of missing sidewalk, but this rises to the top because of safety concerns.


He added the city will get quotes for other sections including Brantingham next to Immaculate Conception Church, and near the Charlie Western Trail which is known as the cookie factory.

He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them.
