Travel News

If you are traveling to the Country Life Center from I-80, please be aware that there is bridge construction on P-28 south of Stuart that may last until June 10 or later. This construction may or may not show up on travel aids such as 511 or GPS. There is a gravel road detour, but we recommend that you exit I-80 at Winterset (Hwy. 169), Earlham (P-57), Dexter (P-53) or Greenfield (Hwy. 25). All of these paved roads will take you to Hwy 92 that connects to P-33, the Henry A. Wallace Road.
