County Road C-49 to be closed for paving

An 11-mile stretch of County Road C-49 in the southern portion of the county will be closed for one week beginning Monday, April 16 (weather permitting). The Humboldt County Engineer's Office will let the public know when the road is reopened.

County Road C-49 (270th Street) from Highway 169 west to County Road P-19 at the Humboldt/Pocahontas county line, is expected to be closed for one week, beginning on Monday, April 16, Humboldt County Interim Engineer Ben Loots reported this week. The purpose of the closing is for an 11-mile road resurfacing project to be conducted by Manatt's Inc. of Brooklyn. The $2.42 million project will include five inches of PCC resurfacing. The road work also includes structure work, aprons, concrete culverts and piping, making the actual paving cost about $215,000 per mile. There will be access and egress to properties during construction. The contractor will let residents know if they will need to park on a north/south intersecting road to have an exit during road work around their homes. Paving is weather dependent. The road is expected to be closed for about one week's time. People with questions may contact the Humboldt County Engineer's office at (515) 332-2366.
