Secondary Roads

Weather permitting, Lower West Branch Road over I-80 will be closed beginning Wednesday, Feb. 28 until the year 2026. The project involves a new bridge for the Lower West Branch Road overpass as part of the I-80 widening project between Iowa City and West Branch. This project is administered by the Iowa DOT.

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.

For general information about this project, contact Adrian Simonson, Iowa DOT Davenport construction office, at 563-391-2750 or [email protected].
