Iowa DOT hosts public meeting for I-80/I-380 Systems Interchange Project

Posted on: April 24, 2019

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – April 24, 2019 – The Iowa Department of Transportation will hold a public open house  April 30 to provide an update on the I-80/I-380 Systems Interchange Project and planned construction activities for 2019.

When: April 30 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Where: Coralville Public Library, 1401 5th Street (parking is available on the east side of the building).

The meeting will be an open house format. Project team members will be available throughout the meeting to answer questions regarding construction. If you are unable to attend the meeting in-person, you will be able to view meeting materials online at www.iowadot/i80-i380 beginning May 1, 2019.

The I-80/I-380 Systems Interchange Project is a comprehensive redesign that will modernize the interchange and improve mobility and safety. This project is in Johnson County at the junction of I-80, I-380 and U.S. Highway 218. Construction for this project is expected to continue through 2023.  The Iowa DOT is replacing the existing interchange with a higher capacity design that will benefit freight trucking, public and commuter traffic, and the rural agriculture and manufacturing economy. Today, this interchange experiences excessive congestion and safety concerns. The project will reconstruct the interchange and add lanes, allowing more vehicles to travel safely and smoothly through the area.

The Coralville Public Library is accessible for persons with disabilities. However, if you require accommodations at the meeting, please notify Cathy Cutler, Iowa DOT District 6 Planner, phone 319-364-0235, email Catherine.cutler@iowadot.us by April 26, 2019.
