A two-year reconstruction project on Iowa Highway 3 is nearing completion in Bremer County.

The Iowa Department of Transportation plans to reopen Bremer Ave. through downtown Waverly Wednesday afternoon (Oct. 24, 2018). Work to rebuild 28 city blocks of Iowa 3 between 20th Street NW/Heritage Way and 8th Street NE began in April 2017.

The highway was previously four lanes through Waverly. The traffic flow has now been reduced to three lanes -- one going in each direction, separated by a center turn lane.
