MASON CITY, Iowa – Road closure signs can be seen on several streets in Mason City, forcing many drivers to take detours. But it has also impacted several local businesses.
Suzie Q Cafe in Mason City is a popular restaurant downtown, but business has been slow over the last several days.
Parking has been limited due to construction projects in the area.
Troy Levenhagen, the owner of Suzie Q, says they have missed out on money, but it won’t be for long.
“A lot of people are upset, everywhere we go in town there’s construction going on but once again like I said let’s be thankful that we have this going on because it’s a pain right now but this too will pass,” says Levenhagen.
City officials say the construction projects should be complete within the next several weeks.
