Cedar County Engineer Rob Fangmann respectfully requests a voluntary embargo of the gravel roads throughout the entire county. With the tremendous amount of snow this winter and the recent thaw, the roads are becoming soft and possibly impassable. The engineer requests everyone limit travel to utilizing pickups and cars until the roads have a chance to heal.
The Secondary Roads Department will attempt to fix areas that they can without destroying miles of roads to get to the problem areas. If you must haul, please limit travel to the early mornings if the roads are frozen. Please cease hauling once the surface begins to soften.
“We appreciate your patience and understanding in this very difficult situation,” Fangmann said.
