Wednesday, Webster County Emergency Management Coordinator, Dylan Hagen issued a statement on potential traffic hazards around Webster County associated with the RAGBRAI stop July 26th. The Statement is below.
On Monday July 26th and Tuesday July 27th, Webster County will see thousands of bicyclists
coming through Slifer, Callender, Moorland, Fort Dodge, and Duncombe. Due to 15,000+ riders,
residents of these communities and those that travel the area should expect delays. To increase
safety for riders, several roadways will be shut down, or have extremely limited traffic on them
during the RAGBRAI event. We encourage you to plan an alternate route during this event.
