AMES, Iowa – January 12, 2024 – I-80 west of the I-80/380 interchange in the Iowa City area to the west end of Iowa County, near Victor is impassable in both directions due to drifting, icy conditions, and crashed vehicles. You will not be able to travel on this portion of I-80 until conditions improve.
In addition, surrounding roadways including I-380 and U.S. 218 are experiencing significant drifting which may make them difficult or impossible to travel on as the night progresses.
