Highway 71 North Of 136 To State Line To Close Wednesday

Highway 71 north of Highway 136 to the Iowa line will close today (Wednesday Oct. 9) at 1:00 to clear cargo from the shoulder of the roadway.  The road was closed Monday morning due to a stalled truck.  A towing company was able to clear the truck, however the cargo it was hauling remains on the side of the road and will require a crane to be brought in to move it.  The closure should last around one hour.
