DES MOINES, Iowa – March 27, 2009 – Two projects are scheduled at Interstate 35/Interstate 80 interchange (east mixmaster) in Des Moines in the coming days.

For the next five weeks, beginning Sunday night, March 29 and running overnights until 6 a.m. Friday mornings, there will be intermittent lane restrictions in either direction on I-80 through the northeast mixmaster area.

Placement of temporary barrier rail will close the inside lanes in both directions on I-35 from the northeast mixmaster to exit 89 (Corporate Woods Drive) from beginning Sunday, March 29 at 9 a.m. through 6 a.m. Monday. The outside lanes will be closed for the same activity Monday, March 30 through 6 a.m. Tuesday.

The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles and wear seat belts.
