Posted on: July 31, 2009

SIOUX CITY, Iowa – July 31, 2009 – Concrete patching work will cause intermittent lane closures on Interstate 29 in Harrison, Monona and Woodbury counties through the month of August, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Sioux City construction office.

The patching project will close sections of one lane in either direction at various locations from Harrison County to the South Dakota border throughout the month. One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained at all times, but delays should be anticipated during peak travel times.   

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 for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles and wear seat belts.
