Posted on: April 29, 2011

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa – April 29, 2011 – Road construction work will cause traffic to be restricted to one lane in alternating directions on Iowa 191 from just south of eastbound Interstate 680 to just north of westbound I-680 beginning Friday, May 6, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Council Bluffs construction office.

Traffic in this work zone will be controlled by temporary traffic signals. A 16-foot width lane restriction will also be in place. The project is expected to be completed by early July, weather permitting.

The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey posted speed limits 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.
