LANE RESTRICTIONS ON 180 NEAR AVOCA BEGIN NEXT WEEK
(COUNCIL BLUFFS) Bridge demolition work will require lane restrictions on Interstate 80 between Pottawattamie County Road M-16 (exit 34) and Pottawattamie County Road M-47 (exit 46) near Avoca beginning Monday, April 4, weather permitting.
The Iowa Department of Transportation’s Council Bluffs construction office says from April 4 to April 17, the inside lane of both east- and westbound I-80 will be closed in the area for construction of median and ramp crossovers.
Beginning April 18, eastbound I-80 traffic will be transferred to one lane of westbound I-80 in a head-to-head pattern. During this phase of construction, the open lanes will have a 14-foot lane width restriction. This traffic pattern is expected to be in place until late July.
