Official Saints Communities
On behalf of the Iowa and Missouri departments of transportation, it is our pleasure and honor to name these towns an "Official Saints Community."
These towns are of only 38 Iowa communities selected to receive this special designation in recognition of completion of the four-lane Avenue of the Saints highway corridor from St. Paul, Minn. to St. Louis, Mo.
We hope that you enjoy your community recognition sign, which is an expression of our appreciation to all the communities along the corridor that endured the growing pains of a new roadway and exhibited tremendous patience during the extended project construction period.
We also remind you of the dedication ceremony scheduled for Friday, July 25 at 9 a.m., to be held at the new Missouri Route 27/61 interchange near Running Fox Elementary School in Clark County, Mo. We hope you can join us at the celebration.
May this designation bring the great people and businesses of the towns added vitality, prosperity and recognition.
