The Iowa Department of Transportation (IowaDOT) reports that if you drive on eastbound Interstate 80 in Coralville you need to be aware of a construction project for the new I-80 and 1st Avenue interchange that may slow down your trip.
Construction crews need to fully close eastbound I-80 at the 1st Avenue interchange (exit 242) from 11:00 p.m. Tuesday, June 20 until 5:00 a.m. Wednesday, June 21, weather permitting. Drivers will be detoured off I-80 at the 1st Avenue ramp (exit 242) and follow a marked detour to the entrance ramp for eastbound I-80.
Help keep everyone on the road safer. Drive with caution, obey the posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, you should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
