The Iowa Department of Transportation (IDOT) will be closing I-80 overnights between Jordan Creek Parkway and Grand Prairie Parkway.
Contractors have planned two nights of overnight road closures. On the first night of work, westbound I-80 will close at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 15, and re-open by 5:00 a.m. on Monday, October 16. On the second night, eastbound I-80 will be closed from 9:00 p.m. on Monday, October 16 to 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 17.
The I-80 closures will allow the contractor to place asphalt on the pavement. This smoother pavement will address several issues in the work zone including difficulty seeing lanes as well as making the road easier to drive on and less noisy.
While the roadway is closed for construction work you will follow a marked detour route using Jordan Creek Parkway, University Avenue, and Grand Prairie Parkway.
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.
