Travelers beware of Labor Day weekend road construction projects


August 30th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Summer is winding down and many travelers will be on Iowa’s highways during the Labor Day holiday weekend. The Iowa Department of Transportation and the state’s counties and cities want to remind travelers to use extra caution in work zones now in place to improve our transportation system. In the KJAN listening area…..

Work on Interstate 29 in Pottawattamie County is underway from the I-29/I-80 split from the Missouri River bridge in Council Bluffs, east approximately 3 miles, to the Lake Manawa/South Expressway interchange. The road is being graded and paved. Through traffic is maintained. Single lane closures may occur during off-peak hours.

In Mills County, southbound I-29 from the Mills County line to the Iowa Highway 92 interchange is being reconstructed. Traffic is maintained in a two-lane, two-way operation in the northbound lanes. And, I-29 dual bridges over Iowa Highway 2 and the dual bridges 1.5 miles south of Iowa 2 are being repaired. Traffic is maintained in single lanes for both travel directions.
