As we cruise into summer, the number of work zones is at its peak on Iowa’s roadways. To plan ahead for your July 4th weekend and other summer travel, check out the DOT’s 2015 major construction project website to provide motorists information on major construction projects that may impact travel.
The site, http://www.iowadot.gov/roadconstruction/2015Projects/index.html, includes an interactive map containing the 47 highway or bridge projects across Iowa that have the potential to cause a major impact to the traveling public. It provides detailed information about each project, including the project location, description, start date, completion date, contracted cost, and more, updated weekly. The map does not contain all Iowa DOT projects that are happening this construction season.
