Lane closures on I-380 east of Waterloo scheduled to begin on Monday, June 17

NEW HAMPTON, Iowa – June 12, 2024 – An upcoming bridge painting project located 10 miles east of Waterloo on the U.S. 20 bridges at the east tri-level interchange with Interstate 380 will require lane closures beginning on Monday, June 17, until late July, weather permitting.

As you are driving through the work zone you will see containment tarps that will hang down from the structures. Sections of I-380 will be closed in the work zone but traffic will always be maintained. You will need to use caution when driving through this work zone as the open lane for traffic is on a curve.

For more information about this and other Iowa DOT construction projects in Black Hawk and Bremer counties, follow the Black Hawk and Bremer County Construction Facebook page at!BlackHawkBremerCo.

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.
