Iowa Notes

<< < (2/28) > >>

Jardine:
Iowa DOT is floating a plan to route US30 north along I-29 to Modale, exit there and head east to Logan via county road (IIRC) F-50 and rejoining the current US30 just south of Logan Iowa.

The locals I've talked to think it's a little awkward and contrived way to do a bypass around Missouri Valley.

Would be cheaper however . . .

Highway63:
1. There is no macro-thread because Jason Hancock and I have our own websites. I'm not here all that often (there are only so many rabbit holes I can fall through at once). I have a blog with daily posts about Iowa-related things, but not always about highways.

2. The flyover ramp is NB 35 to WB 30, which was a loop in the cloverleaf but is the most heavily traveled movement.

3. The one standalone Iowa I-129 shield was "End 129" approaching I-29; I took a picture of it in 2014 but GMSV in July 2015 shows it disappeared.

This article from The Des Moines Register summarizes the major Iowa road projects for 2018:

* Completing the last US 20 expressway segment between Early and Moville
* Reconstructing the I-35/1st Street interchange in Ankeny to the second DDI in Iowa
* Completion of the aforementioned flyover ramp from I-35 north to US 30 west in Ames
* Completing an interchange of IA 330, US 65, and IA 117 about halfway between Altoona and Marshalltown
* Grading two new lanes for US 30 between Tama/Toledo and a point west of IA 21 (an interchange will be built there later)
* Grading the Southwest Arterial in Dubuque
* Grading for two new lanes of US 61 between Mediapolis and Burlington (article says Wapello, but Wapello is more than 10 miles from Burlington)
* Reconstructing the I-35/IA 175 interchange
* Reconstructing US 63 north of downtown Waterloo
* The ongoing reconstruction of I-29/80 in Council Bluffs and I-29 in Sioux City, and the new I-74 bridge in the Quad Cities

I'm glad they're doing something about that one, as that is one dangerous intersection as it currently is.

triplemultiplex:
US 20 is such a pleasant drive across Iowa, if one has the time to go out of their way a bit. The hell with I-80 and all its trucks.
Easy for me to say with an origin in Wisconsin, though.
Anyway, once the expressway is done, that trip will get even nicer.
