Only in Iowa ?
« on: July 07, 2021, 03:10:52 PM »

Heading to Quad Cites for the road meet,  I hit some road work along I-80 east of Des Moines.  The westbound lanes were converted to two-way traffic while the eastbound lanes were for oversized loads only, but not everyone followed directions.

Looks like a standard split/merge arrangement, with one direction having one lane on each carriageway.  I've never seen one with signing specifically indicating the rightmost split lane is for oversized loads only (or local traffic only).

I think MN is doing something similar on the I-94 reconstruction east of Rogers.
