We Service All BOTTLE GAS APPLIANCES Rapid - Thermogas COMPANY Ph. 1542 F. R. White, Ames, chief engineer of the Iowa Stale High way Commission, told the Globe-Gazelle hat the Highway Commission plans o let contracts for bridges, culverts nnd grading of the now road his fall and winter. Whether paving can be done luring the 1953 season depends on some matters over which we have 10 control . . . such as (tie steel shortage," White said, RIghr-of-Way "It is safe to say," lie added, '(bat If local objections do not Jn terfcrc, Highway :I8 between Mason City nnd Nora Springs will be graded, bridged and culvcrlcd in 1053," White said some right-of-way already hns been purchased for the ·rojcet. Concerning objections to .ho project, White said: "There is some local objection in the town of Nora Springs to this proposed new route, Apparently a minority of citizens of Nora Springs wahi lo keep Highway 18 on · the present route, entering N o r a Springs from the west. "We feel that the proposed new route through the town of Nora Springs is the proper route. Wq Feel that it would l)e n- serious mistake if wo failed to; build this road on the proposed new route." Dangerous J 0 g The proposed route .would eliminate a dangerous dog-leg jog in the present Highway 18 and several turns just outside and in Nora Springs, including the underpass. The jog begins a mile and a half cast of the Taylor Bridge In Mason City. Instead of Inking the jog, the new road would go directly cast. It would follow two nnd a hiilf miles of county road which would be c- bullt. An entirely hew road would bo built to Nora Springs to link up with highway ,18 east,of that town. Objectors to the proposed new route include perso.ns in Nora Springs who have businesses along the present route. Raymond Zack, Mason City, the Highsvay Commission's district engineer here, said t h a t eight steel girders are available, for a new bridge to. bo built over tlio Shell- rock Iliver, just a block north of the present bridge. Ho said having t h e ' m a t e r i a l on hand eliminated one problem that could slow tibly. Ever the Highway Commission lias been plagued by steel shortages. Zaek also said he expects paving to begin Sept. 1 on the relocated Highway 18 between Clear Lake ami the Hancock County lino. Work is progressing rapidly on paving Highway 105 between Lake Mills and ,Nqrlhwood. The Fred Carlson firm has just under four miles to complete, Zaek said. After the 105 job is completed, Carlson will come immediately to Cerro Gordo 1 County. A dry fall will insure comple- lion of the work .thus year, Zaek said.
