The Iowa Department of Transportation’s Council Bluffs construction office reports bridge construction work will cause lane restrictions in both directions of Interstate 29 between U.S. 30 (exit 75) and Harrison County Road F-50 (exit 82) near Missouri Valley beginning May 6th and lasting until August 5th, weather permitting.

Traffic in the work zone will be restricted to one lane in each direction. Also, a 13-foot-6-inch width lane restriction will be in place.

The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey posted speed limits 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, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles and wear seat belts.
