MASON CITY — A two-year long road construction project in Mason City is about to come to an end.

The Iowa Department of Transportation says work on State Highway 122 between South Monroe and South Carolina is scheduled to be completed on Friday. Weather permitting, crews at 5 o’clock on Friday evening will start shifting traffic, which currently is running head-to-head in the westbound lanes, onto the newly reconstructed eastbound lanes, returning traffic to their normal patterns.

The DOT says drivers should still be aware of temporary lane closures as the contractor wraps up the project. Stop signs that were removed at the Delaware, Jefferson, and Pennsylvania Avenue intersections will once again be installed on the side streets crossing the highway.
