Eastbound I-80 exit ramp at Dallas County Road R-16 (exit 113) near Van Meter to close on Monday night, March 18

CRESTON, Iowa – March 8, 2024 – If you travel on eastbound Interstate 80 near Van Meter you should be aware of upcoming ramp closure that may slow down your trip.

Crews need to close the eastbound I-80 ramp (exit 113) near Van Meter so new grading and pavement work can be completed. The exit ramp will be closed from 8 p.m. Monday, March 18 until July 1, weather permitting.  

While the exit ramp is closed you will follow a marked detour route by traveling on eastbound I-80 to the next exit at Dallas County Road R-22 (exit 117), and then travel west on I-80 where you exit at Dallas County Road R-16 (exit 113) near Van Meter.

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.
