COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa – July 8, 2011 – Bridge construction work will cause lane restrictions on eastbound Interstate 680 between I-29 (exit 71) and Pottawattamie County Road L-34 (exit 21) east of Crescent beginning Monday, July 18, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Council Bluffs construction office.

The right lane will be closed in the construction zone. The open lanes will have a 14-foot width lane restriction. This project is expected to be completed by mid-November.

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.
