Iowa Route 16 is an east-west route in southeastern Iowa. The westernmost portion bends northerly out of Eldon to end at US Route 34 just east of Ottumwa. The eastern end is an intersection with US Route 61 between Fort Madison and Burlington. Iowa Route 16 stays in mainly rural areas between US Route 34 and Iowa Route 2.
My photo of Iowa Route 16 comes from an intersection with Iowa Route 1. Namely, this is the northern junction of Iowa Route 1 and Iowa Route 16; a short concurrency extends south from this point. The sign assembly shown faces west, indicating to eastbound traffic on Iowa Route 16 that a right turn is required to continue down Iowa Route 16. This photo was taken on June 30, 2017, as part of the eastern Iowa trip. Back to the Iowa main page. Back to the home page.
