The Iowa Department of Transportation will resume construction of the I-80 Interchange at Dubuque Street (Exit 244) beginning the week of March 31. This will be a continuation of the project that was stopped in August 2013. On Tuesday, April 8, weather permitting, traffic on Dubuque Street will be shifted to the southbound lanes with one lane of traffic in each direction between Linder Road and Foster Road. At this time, the westbound exit ramp will also close. All other ramp movements will remain open.
Westbound traffic wishing to exit on Dubuque Street will be detoured to 1st Ave (Exit 242). The detour will provide for traffic to return to Dubuque Street on the eastbound lanes to the Dubuque Street exit.
Work to be completed includes paving the northbound lanes on Dubuque Street and removals of the old northbound to westbound entrance ramp and of the old northbound to eastbound entrance ramp.
It is anticipated that construction will be completed by early June.
