Louisa County could see 4-lanes on U.S. Highway 61 according an Iowa Department of Transportation proposal that has been in the works since 2011. A public forum was held last week regarding the potential reconstruction of U.S. 61 in Louisa County from north of 130th Street to the existing four-lane roadway at the Muscatine County line. The DOT will accept written comments regarding the nearly $30 million project until Monday, March 25. To view blue prints, DOT contact info and a full description of the project go to www.iowadot.gov/PIM

The Community came together last weekend for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraiser. The top fundraising team was Resource Retirement Group with just over $3,000.
