Some residents of Sioux Center in northwest Iowa say they're concerned by renewed study of a highway that cuts through the middle of town.
Iowa Department of Transportation has offered $40,000 for a study of U.S. Highway 75.
That's made some residents uneasy as it follows plans in early 2013 to spend $6.7 million on improvements that included widening about a mile of the highway through business and residential areas. After opposition from residents, the City Council halted the plan.
Rachel Hoogeveen, who helped lead opposition to the highway widening, says she hopes city officials will proceed carefully and involve residents in their decisions.
Sioux Center City Administrator Paul Clousing says the study will include a traffic count and alternatives besides highway expansion.
