Notice - Detour Map
As part of the Jefferson County Highway Department Facility construction, County Trunk Highway W will be closed from Collins Road to the Highway 26 Bypass (more specifically the portion of South Main Street/Business 26 that connects with Hwy W). This closure is expected to occur on April 28. The initial closure is for the installation of utilities for the project. The initial closure is anticipated to last 4 weeks. The roadway will be opened to local traffic as the Countyís intent is for the roadway to be only restored to gravel. The County then plans to reconstruct this section of County Truck Highway W starting the beginning of August and have the project completed and fully open to traffic prior to the commencement of the 2014-2015 school year.
Please utilize the detour of County Trunk Highway J, State Trunk Highway 89, Collins Road and South Main Street/Business 26.
Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
We encourage you to visit our community and enjoy our proud German Heritage. In September of each year, citizens of the City of Jefferson participate in "Gemuetlichkeit Days" to celebrate our German Heritage. Young and old dress in traditional German costume and participate in contests throughout the festival weekend. Just a few things you can enjoy are music and dancing, indulging in authentic German cuisine, and a huge parade on Sunday.
The festival is a family event with a German theme, but don't worry...you don't have to be German to enjoy it!
The festival takes place the 2nd weekend after
