Road Closures Alternative Route


The U.S. Highway 159 bridge over Interstate 29 is currently closed at Exit 79 due to construction. County Road E between County Road F and Mound City is also closed. This may alter your route to get to the refuge from Interstate 29.  

Alternative directions to the refuge headquarters building and main auto tour entrance are: 

From the south, take Exit 79 off of Interstate 29. Turn right and take an immediate left onto County Road F. Continue for 1.5 miles. When you reach the stop sign, turn left onto County Road E. Continue for one mile. At the stop sign, turn right onto U.S. Highway 159. The headquarters building is 1/2 mile ahead on the left hand side. 

From the north, take Exit 79 and turn right onto U.S. Highway 159. Continue for 2.5 miles.

The option is to enter through the Mallard Marsh entrance on the north side of the refuge. Take exit 84 off of Interstate 29 and head southwest on Highway 118. Travel 1.5 miles and the entrance will be on the left hand side.
