The paving of 227th Street on the south edge of Fairfield is in the final stages of construction! The project includes a half mile of pavement on 227th Street and the addition of a southbound left turn lane on Iowa Hwy. 1. The pavement provides smooth, dust free access to 67 acres in the FEDA’s South Business and Industrial Park, the expanding Iowa DOT facility, as well as the City of Fairfield’s waste water treatment plant and many residents and farms. This project has been a joint effort between the City of Fairfield, Jefferson County, and Iowa DOT.
