Overnight road closure on eastbound I-80 in West Des Moines scheduled for Monday, Nov. 6

CRESTON, Iowa – Nov. 1, 2023 – You may notice a delay on eastbound Interstate 80 west of Des Moines overnight on Monday, Nov. 6 into Tuesday, Nov. 7. The Iowa Department of Transportation needs to close the road overnight between Jordan Creek Parkway and Grand Prairie Parkway.

Our contractors have planned an overnight road closure on Monday, Nov. 6 at 10 p.m. until Tuesday, Nov. 7 at 5 a.m., weather permitting. The road closure will allow the contractor to remove sign trusses.

While the roadway is closed, you will follow a marked detour route using Jordan Creek Parkway, University Avenue, and Grand Prairie Parkway (see map).

Help keep everyone on the road safer. 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, you should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
