Westbound U.S. 20 entrance ramp at Iowa 136 in Dyersville scheduled to close on Tuesday, April 2

DYERSVILLE, Iowa – March 21, 2024 – If you drive on westbound U.S. 20 from Iowa 136 leaving Dyersville you need to be aware of an upcoming ramp closure that could impact your trip.

The Iowa DOT Manchester construction office announces that the westbound entrance ramp for U.S. 20 will be closed on Tuesday, April 2, until late May, weather permitting, so repairs can be made to the U.S. 20 bridge over Iowa 136. The work will include patching and overlays for the bridge deck.

To travel around the work zone you will be directed east on U.S. 20 to Farley and then turn around at the Farley interchange before returning on westbound U.S. 20. Thru traffic on westbound U.S. 20 will be maintained in the left lane. 

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.
