Traffic pattern changes on Iowa 27/Iowa 58 and Ridgeway Avenue in Cedar Falls begin on Monday, March 18

NEW HAMPTON, Iowa – March 4, 2024 – You’ll want to take note and be prepared for traffic pattern changes coming soon on Iowa 27/Iowa 58 in Cedar Falls, according to the Iowa DOT’s New Hampton construction office.

On Monday, March 18, weather permitting, work will resume on the second year of reconstruction work on Iowa 27/Iowa 58 from U.S. 20 through Ridgeway Avenue in Cedar Falls. This work will continue into late November.

Traffic on Iowa 27/Iowa 58 will be placed in a head-to-head pattern in the southbound lanes. Traffic on Ridgeway Avenue will be placed in a head-to-head pattern in the westbound lanes.

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.
