Interstate 80 rest area, east of Victor on eastbound I-80
About the Project
The Iowa Department of Transportation is requesting public input for the proposed improvements and right of way needs to the Interstate 80 rest area, east of Victor on eastbound I-80, approximately 2.25 to 2.8 miles east of Iowa County Road V-38 interchange, in Iowa County.
The Rest Area Management Plan identified the need for additional truck parking at this rest area. The purpose of the project is to add truck parking spaces, a truck inspection area on the east end of the rest area, and new sidewalk connections to the new rest area building. The existing rest area includes parking spaces for 22 trucks, 85 passenger cars, and 3 accessible paces. These will be replaced with new parking spaces for 40 trucks, 47 passenger cars, and 4 accessible spaces. The rest area will remain open during construction, with trucks prohibited during a portion of the construction.
Construction of the project is expected to begin in 2023.
