If you are driving on Interstate 80 in Dallas County in the coming weeks you may notice some nighttime construction work taking place on the roadway between U.S. 169 and West Des Moines.
The Iowa Department of Transportation (IDOT) reports that nighttime ramp closures will occur from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Sunday nights to Friday mornings beginning on Sunday, June 11 to Thursday, June 29, weather permitting. For construction crews working on hot-mix asphalt milling and resurfacing work to get work done they will need to close the Interstate 80 ramps at Dallas County Road R-22 (exit 117), Dallas County Road R-16 (exit 113) and at U.S. 169 (exit 110). Marked detour routes will be in place to assist motorists as the ramp closures occur. Only one Interstate 80 ramp location will be worked on at a time.
Help keep everyone on Interstate 80 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.
