US 20 group pledges another push for 4-lane

Thursday, July 5, 2007

The US 20 Corridor Association hopes Friday the 13th will be good luck.

The Association, which has been working for many years to try to convince leaders to complete a US 20 four-lane corridor through western Iowa, will meet at Iowa State Bank in Sac City on that date.

Rep. Rod Roberts, of the Iowa Legislalature TIME-21 transportation study committee charged with evaluating potential new funding sources for road projects, will address the group. DOT Engineer Rich Michaelis will also be on hand to update the group on ongoing efforts over stretches of the US 20 Corridor in the region.

The meeting is open to the public, at 10 a.m. "We invite everyone interested in seeing US 20 four-laned across Iowa to join our cause," said Shirley Phillips, president of the Association. "We are encouraged by each mile of progress and pledge to continue our advocacy until the last mile of four-lane is complete."
