COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — Feb. 1, 2024 – The Council Bluffs Interstate System Improvement Program released its 2023 Annual Report today that highlights progress made on construction projects over the last year. The annual report features information about completed and active projects, public outreach, program status and statistics for work completed in 2023. This multi-year, multi-stage construction program has been transforming the transportation system in the Council Bluffs area, making travel safer and more convenient. The entire program is scheduled to be completed in 2026.

“As the Council Bluffs Interstate System Improvement Program nears the end of construction, it is important to reflect on the significant investment that the Iowa Transportation Commission has made in our area’s state transportation infrastructure. This investment has had a profound impact on our community, both in terms of the physical improvements made to the interstate system and the economic and social benefits that have resulted,” said Iowa DOT District 4 Engineer Scott Schram. “This Annual Report provides a high-level overview of all of the work that occurred in 2023 to provide the public with a summary of how Iowa DOT is delivering this important highway improvement project.”
