The agency having jurisdiction and control over any highway in the state, or the chief engineer of said agency when delegated by such agency, may temporarily close sections of a highway by formal resolution entered upon the minutes of such agency when reasonably necessary because of construction, reconstruction, maintenance or natural disaster and shall cause to be erected “road closed” signs and partial or total barricades in the roadway at each end of the closed highway section and on the closed highway where that highway is intersected by other highways if such intersection remains open. Any numbered road closed for over forty–eight hours shall have a designated detour route. The agency having jurisdiction over a section of highway closed in accordance with the provisions of this section, or the persons or contractors employed to carry out the construction, reconstruction, or maintenance of the closed section of highway, shall not be liable for any damages to any vehicle that enters the closed section of highway or the contents of such vehicle or for any injuries to any person that enters the closed section of highway, unless the damages are caused by gross negligence of the agency or the contractor.

Nothing herein shall be construed to prohibit or deny any person from gaining lawful access to the person’s property or residence, nor shall it change or limit liability to such persons.

They will continue to keep as much free or low cost entertainment on the grounds in addition to the carnival area. New to the grounds last year was the jump pillow which provided free entertainment for all of the kids. The capital improvements they have made were to improve the show arena. They tore down the old ISU Extension office they are looking to build a new building which will be the permanent office for ISU Extension and provide bathrooms and a shower facility. The Fair Board is requesting $20,000 for FY21.
