Burning the bumps
Drivers on Highway 1 North should find their ride a bit smoother after the Iowa Department of Transportation completes the task of smoothing out the heaved spots in the road. This morning, Larry Johnson controlled the flames under his truck while Doug Brown signaled it was hot enough to melt the heaved asphalt. Johnson then used a blade located under the truck to smooth out the asphalt. Jerry Leonard was in charge of controlling traffic as the crew “burned the bumps.”
