State Suggests County Take Over Highway 44 Condition of Iowa highway 44 between Whittemore and Armstrong came up for discussion when a five-man delegation from Kossuth county talked the problem over with the State Highway Commission at Ames Wednesday, July 7. Meeting with the entire commission were Harry Greenberg, Mayor Bill Finn and Bill Conn, Algona, and Ray Stoeber and Clarence Yager, Fenton. Practically every spring, including the past five years, highway 44 has been embargoed - and except for one short stretch of time during that five year period, the embargo has been enforced. One of the major problems due to the embargo is the inability of merchants whose towns lie along the highway to get large loads of freight to their stores. Fenton store operators have especially felt the lack of the use of the highway. Greenberg told the commission that an unofficial survey of the highway recently showed 77 breaks in the blacktop highway between Whittemore and Armstrong, a distance of about 25 miles. Chief Engineer L. M. Clawson of the commission told the Algona (la.) Upp«r DM MofrM Tu««day, Jidy 13, 1965 Kossuth men that a survey of costs for a resurfacing project on highway 44 showed about $1.3 million would be spent for the job to the Minnesota state line. Chairman Harry Bradley, Jr, of the commission said the group would have its district engineer discuss the problem with the Kossuth board of supervisors to determine if the county has any interest In taking over the road. If the highway Is eventually turned over to the county, the state would repair the road and put it in standard condition before switching it to county jurisdiction. Therefore, the cost of the resurfacing would be paid before the county "owns" the highway. It will probably be some time before a final decision is made. The general reaction in county circles was that it seemed unlikely that Kossuth would move to take over the present state highway as a part of the county system, however.
