New Plans In The Works For Highway 163

More development is being consideredfor Highway 163 through Marion County and to the eastern border of the state. County Engineer Roger Schletzbaum tells KNIA/KRLS News that a proposal is soon to be released by the Central Iowa Regional Planning Agency that would establish a set number of access points to Highway 163 and also identify that road with State Highway 63 as the “Heartland Highway”. Schletzbaum says that a “Heartland Highway” would be good for Marion County business. He expects the propostal to be released by the end of the month.
