DAVENPORT, Iowa – June 14, 2022– As part of the Interstate 80/Herbert Hoover Highway (exit 249) interchange project, traffic will be shifted through the new roundabouts onto the new Herbert Hoover Highway bridge Monday, June 20, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Davenport construction office.
During this shift the eastbound I-80 exit ramp to Herbert Hoover Highway/Johnson County Road F-44 (exit 249) will be closed. The eastbound I-80 entrance ramp will also remain closed. Both eastbound ramps are expected to re-open Wednesday, Nov. 30.
During these closures, eastbound I-80 exit ramp traffic will be detoured (see map) by traveling to West Branch (exit 254), and then turning onto westbound I-80 to Herbert Hoover Highway/Johnson County Road F-44 (exit 249). Eastbound I-80 entrance ramp traffic will continue to be detoured (see map) by traveling on westbound I-80 to Iowa 1 (exit 246), and then turning onto eastbound I-80.
The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey the 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.
