Snow gates being installed on roads near Mason City

Posted:

MASON CITY (KWWL)-- Iowa's first snow gates are being installed.

The remote-controlled gates are being placed on Interstate 35 and Highway 18 near Mason City-- that's a stretch of road that sees some of the worst conditions.

In the past, road-crews used snowplows across the road to close the interstate.

The gates come with a $15,000-thousand price tag, and should be ready by January.
