The Iowa Department of Transportation's District 2 Office and the Iowa State Patrol are asking for assistance from ice fishing anglers on the Mississippi River parking along Iowa 26 in Allamakee County.
Vehicles parked on the shoulder of Iowa 26 north of Lansing can interfere with snow removal operations. Snowplow drivers end up leaving a bank of snow alongside the vehicles parked on the shoulder that cannot be cleared until the vehicles are moved. This can cause unsafe driving conditions for those leaving their fishing spots, as well as others traveling on Iowa 26.
Whether winter precipitation is in the forecast, still falling or has yet to be cleared from the road, parking along the shoulder of Iowa 26 should be avoided. Instead, the Iowa DOT and ISP are asking anglers to use the designated parking areas along the east and west sides of Iowa 26 north of Lansing located at:
• Milepost 1.8 (east side of Iowa 26)
• Milepost 2.0 (east side of Iowa 26)
• Milepost 2.4 (east side of Iowa 26)
• Milepost 7.3 (west side of Iowa 26)
Using designated parking areas allows snowplow drivers to completely clean the roadway in an effort to create safe roadway conditions.
