I-80/I-380 construction

Attention icon

Due to COVID-19 we are asking visitors to not come to the I-80/I-380 Systems Interchange Project Office in Coralville to do business. Please call 712-216-3339 or contact Wendy.Thompson@iowadot.us for assistance. If a trip to our facility cannot be avoided visitors will be asked a series of questions to evaluate their risk of exposure to COVID-19 and exposure to others in that facility before they are allowed to enter. Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time.

Current traffic impacts


It is anticipated that overnight closures will occur throughout the project. Detours will be posted, and notices provided, on 511ia.org. Emergency closures have occurred in the project area due to quick-forming pavement potholes and pavement settlement issues. Active emergency closures are posted to the 511ia.org. Please follow 511ia.org for the most current construction information and notifications.


Project update

Speed limit changes

Sections throughout the interchange have reduced speed limits to support the ongoing construction efforts in this area. View a map which illustrates the speed limits throughout the project area.

Traffic impacts and potential delays

For the best source and latest updates for traffic alerts and notifications, follow 511ia.org. Construction activities will have a greater impact on traffic in 2021 as all quadrants of the interchange will have active construction. 2021 will bring even more construction activity throughout the Systems Interchange with significant travel impacts. As the final 3.5 years of the construction project begin, lane shifts and reductions will result in travel feeling tighter and more cramped throughout the system. In addition, major long-term closures are scheduled to begin, as noted in the 2021 construction activities map (to the right). Drivers should begin to expect longer travel times and potential detours as they travel through the interchange. Major closures anticipated in 2021 include:

  • Ireland Avenue to I-80 eastbound on-ramp closure anticipated Summer 2021 for approximately 3 months.
  • I-80 westbound to U.S. 218 southbound loop permanent closure anticipated Summer/Fall 2021. The new ramp is anticipated to open Fall/Winter 2023.
  • U.S. 218 northbound to I-80 westbound loop permanent closed in December 2020. The new ramp is anticipated to open Fall/Winter 2023.



380 Express Bus between Cedar Rapids and Iowa City is available for travelers in the area. Buses run regularly Monday through Friday. Buses are ADA compliant and feature free Wi-Fi. For rate and schedule details, visit 380express.com

Each motor coach is cleaned and sanitized daily. Riders are asked to limit trips for essential purposes only.
