I-680 Construction Zone Closed to Public
September 28th, 2011 by Doug Evans
The Iowa DOT is reminding the public that all persons are prohibited from entering the Interstate 680 construction site. The construction site will only be open to contractor employees and individuals directly involved in the rebuilding project.
The Iowa DOT would like to have interstate 680 partially or completely open by the end of the year. Disruptions caused by the public by entering the construction site could cause delays in re-building the interstate.
The contractor is mobilizing its equipment to the site and beginning work using heavy equipment and trucks. The work environment is heavily congested and unsafe for observers.
The Iowa DOT says it will let the public know if there are any opportunities in the future to view the construction site.
