More development is being consideredfor Highway 163 through Marion County and to the eastern border of the state. County Engineer Roger Schletzbaum tells KNIA/KRLS News that a proposal is soon to be released by the Central Iowa Regional Planning Agency that would establish a set number of access points to Highway 163 and also identify that road with State Highway 63 as the “Heartland Highway”. Schletzbaum says that a “Heartland Highway” would be good for Marion County business. He expects the propostal to be released by the end of the month.
