Lane closures on U.S. 20 east of Sioux City in Woodbury County begin on Monday, March 18

SIOUX CITY, Iowa – March 11, 2024 – Drivers on U.S. 20 east of Sioux City in Woodbury County need to be aware of lane closures that may impact their trip beginning at 7 a.m. on Monday, March 18, until Nov. 22, weather permitting.

On Monday, March 18, weather permitting, crews will shift westbound U.S. 20 traffic onto the eastbound U.S. 20 lanes in a head-to head traffic pattern so work can be done of Stage 2 of reconstruction of the westbound lanes of U.S. 20. Until the project is complete, you won’t be able to make left turns while traveling in the work zone.   

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.
