The conversion of CSAH 45 (Oak Avenue) from a 4-lane road to a 3-lane road.

The Iowa Department of Transportation has produced a video explaining why converting an existing four lane road to a three lane road consisting of one lane going each direction and a turn lane in the center can help to improve safety and traffic flow.
