Iowa DOT News Release

Intermittent lane closures on Iowa 192 in Pottawattamie County begin Sept. 6

Posted on: August 31, 2011

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa – Aug. 31, 2011 – Road construction work on Iowa 192/South Expressway Street just north of Interstate 29/80 at exit 3 near Lake Manawa will cause intermittent lane closures in both directions beginning Tuesday, Sept. 6, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Council Bluffs construction office.

Flaggers will be used to control traffic during the closure. The roadway will return to normal traffic patterns when workers are not present. Motorists are asked to consider using an alternate route during this construction project.

This project is expected to be completed by Jan. 9, 2012.

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.
