Highway 75 Enhancement

Our Highway 75 corridor serves as part of the US highway system and as our main street.

As our population and traffic increase, this corridor is stressed, especially during peak times.

We want a corridor that will safely serve our community and visitors, offer safe pedestrian use and welcome travelers to our thriving community.

We are working with the Iowa DOT on a design that would change Highway 75 in Sioux Center to an enhanced 4-lane roadway.

This design features two lanes of travel in each direction with medians and a center turn lane.

Designed for safety


Landscaped medians calm traffic and create a safe zone for pedestrians crossing the street. They can also decrease the number of conflict points where traffic turns.

Effective & Accessible


Two lanes will help traffic flow and allow for more space between vehicles for safety and for turning traffic.
