Public input requested for three proposed bridge removals on U.S. 20 in Woodbury County

AMES, Iowa – April 3, 2023 – The Iowa Department of Transportation is requesting public input for the proposed removal of three bridges on U.S. 20/U.S. 75 Sioux City Bypass over an abandoned railroad 0.1 miles east of Morningside Avenue/Woodbury County Road D-25.

Rail tracks are no longer in place, under the bridges and no trail is planned in this area as all land is owned privately. Construction of the project is expected to begin in 2025.

Through traffic on U.S. 20/U.S.75 would be maintained at all times. However, the westbound U.S. 20/southbound U.S. 75 off-ramp at Morningside Ave would be closed and rerouted to the next interchange at Sunnybrook Dr. For more information, see the website listed below.
