The Jefferson County Board of Supervisors met Monday with assistant county engineer Brent LaPoint who informed them that Germanville Road would soon be patched from 150th Street to the Jefferson County line.

Cedar Falls Construction of Waterloo will complete the project, which LaPoint said should begin Friday.

“It’s exciting that we are able to get the patching done on some of our paved roads,” LaPoint said, adding that the road would be patched with concrete, and that the patching would make the road smooth enough for a thin, hot-mix asphalt overlay, which would likely occur within one to two years.

LaPoint said the timing of the project depends on funding.

The project costs around $290,000, and will cover 6.5 miles of road.

“Germanville Road is one of our hard surface roads that we had talked about tearing up ... but there are still sections of road that are too good to tear up,” said supervisor Dick Reed. “This patching method will allow us to move forward so that we can resurface in the future.”

LaPoint said that during road construction, there would be a one-lane road with a pilot car to ease the flow of traffic.

“It’s been a long time coming for Germanville Road,” supervisor Lee Dimmitt said.
