I-80/I-380 construction


Travel Impacts

Travel in the area is beginning to be impacted by construction activities on the Systems Interchange. Activities will continue to progress and impact travel times.

During reconstruction of the I-80/I-380 Systems Interchange ongoing construction activities will continue to impact drivers throughout the system. Drivers should anticipate the following changes in travel:

  • Lane Shifts: New traffic patterns along I-80, I-380 and U.S. 218 are in place. Lane shifts have been added throughout the system and will be in place for approximately 3 months. Drivers should be aware that in some areas, the shoulders have been eliminated due to the lane shifts and/or the addition of a temporary construction barrier rail has been added to help protect the public from construction activities and protect workers from traffic.
  • Nightly Lane Closures: Nightly, single lane closures are in effect along I-80, I-380, and U.S. 218.
  • Overnight Road/Ramp Closures: Nightly ramp and road closures are in effect. At times there are multiple closures occurring at the same time on the interchange.

For traveler information, real time construction and roadway condition alerts, the public can access Iowa’s 511 system through web and mobile applications. Please visit www.511ia.org. In the event of an emergency, dial 911.
