In addition, motorists are advised to expect temporary travel restrictions on Friday, June 2nd, during the annual tractor ride through Dubuque County. The annual Summer Farm Toy Show Tractor Ride will be held Friday and follows a 50-mile loop beginning and ending in Dyersville with visits to Epworth and Cascade. In Cascade, make sure to get a taste of Moski's BBQ during the stop. I highly recommend it!

According to the Dubuque County Road Department temporary restrictions are expected from 8am to 3pm on these county roadways: Dyersville East, Holy Cross, New Vienna, Gun Club, Placid, East Pleasant Grove, Roller Coaster, North Cascade, Kearney, Farley, Jamesmeier, Prier, and Olde Hawkeye roads.
