The Iowa DOT’s Creston construction office says Median cable barrier installation work will reduce Interstate 80 to one lane in both directions, between Dallas County roads F-90 and P-58 (exit 106) east of Earlham, and I-35/I-235 (exit 123) in Clive beginning Thursday, Sept. 8th, weather permitting

Eastbound I-80 lanes will be open from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. Mondays through Fridays. Westbound lanes of I-80 will be open from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Both directions of I-80 will be open from 3 p.m. Fridays until 9 p.m. Sundays. There is a 16-foot width lane restriction in the open lanes. It’s expected the project will be completed Nov. 8th.

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