ENGINEER’S REPORT

Road segments proposed for addition to the Farm to Market system:

  1. Route D36 (Old Highway 20) between the Calhoun County line and West Corporate Limit of Moorland.  The addition of this road segment is needed to provide inter-county continuity with Route D36 in Calhoun County.
  2. Route D36 (Grant Avenue) between North Corporate Limit of Moorland to Routes D20/D 26 (230th Street). The addition of this segment will provide the continuity to connect Route D36 to existing FM Routes D20 and D26.
  3. Route P33 (Johnson Avenue) between Route D22 (Parker Drive) and Iowa Highway 7. The existing Route P33 has been severed by railroad crossing construction, adjacent to the Valero Ethanol and Tate & Lyle plant sites. This proposed route appears to be the best way to restore the continuity of the route.

Road segment proposed for addition to Farm to Market Extension System:

  1. Route D36 (Old Highway 20) between West Corporate Limit of Moorland to North Corporate Limit of Moorland. This change is necessary to maintain continuity of Route D36.

Road segments proposed for deletion from the Farm to Market system:

  1. Route P33 (Hayes Ave) between Route D22 (210th Street) and Iowa Highway 7. Construction of railroad crossing, adjacent to the Valero Ethanol and Tate & Lyle plant sites, required a deep cut to obtain the necessary grade elevation and severed the existing route.
  2. Route D20 (Old Hwy 20) between Route D36 (Grant Avenue) and relocated Route D20 (Old Highway 20). The construction of new Highway 20 and the associated interchange with Routes D20 and D26 left this segment as a Dead End road, a portion of which has been obliterated.
  3. Route P33 (George Avenue) between North Corporate Limit of Moorland and Route D26 (230th Street). This road segment was severed and a portion has been vacated to accommodate the construction of new Highway 20.

Road segment proposed for deletion from the Farm to Market Extension system:

  1. Route P33 (Grand Avenue) between Route D36 (Old Highway 20) and North Corporate Limit of Moorland.  This road segment is the extension of George Avenue, which was vacated for the construction of new Highway 20

Motion carried unanimously.

Moved by Condon, seconded by Fletcher to adjourn the meeting.  Motion carried unanimously.
