AMES, Iowa – April 27, 2017 – The Iowa Department of Transportation is conducting a planning study of Interstate 380 between Cedar Rapids and Iowa City and would like your input. The study will be developed and released through a series of technical reports that identify the existing conditions of I-380, the way the system is performing, short- and long-term issues, and strategies to improve the route.

These technical memorandums will make recommendations that will conclude in an investment strategy (or vision) for the corridor. Each report will be accessible online as it becomes available on the Iowa DOT’s I-380 Planning Study website:

The Iowa DOT is asking interested parties to take a few minutes to review the materials on the I-380 Planning Study and provide feedback. The website offers a way for those interested to receive future emails or text messages regarding the study. Use the “Stay Connected” link on the I-380 Planning Study website to sign up.
