Highway 151 Reopens Near Fairfax
FARIFAX, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) Five days into construction work, the Iowa Department of Transportation has reopend Highway 151 near Farifax in Linn County.
The Linn County Sheriffs Office says the road was reopened Sunday afternoon after the DOT had the road shut down for two weeks after flash flooding caused parts of the road to give out.
During the road closure, drivers were faced with long detours and had to take 50-mile routes just to get to Cedar Rapids.
More repairs are still scheduled for the highway which are expected to run at about $300,000.
