Beginning April 3, 2023, the Iowa DOT's contractor, PCI, will be starting the first stage of the IA 27/58 at Ridgeway Avenue and US 20 reconstruction project. Work will be split into two overall stages for the IA 27/58 and US 20 interchange. The first stage will be rebuilding the westerly half including the westerly side ramps of US 20, and the second stage will be reconstructing the easterly half including the easterly side ramps of US 20. An overall detour route will be established utilizing Viking Road and Hudson Road. Below you will find maps with the closure area highlighted:
During this first stage, crews will work to establish a crossover on IA 27/58 south of Viking Road with lane closures over the next two to three weeks. Then, in mid-April, traffic will be placed head-to-head on IA 27/58 in the previous northbound lanes while crews work to remove and rebuild the westerly side of the project in Stage 1. North and Southbound traffic will be reduced to one lane on IA 27/58 from Cedar Falls to US 20. The intersection of IA 27/58 and Ridgeway will be kept open, but at a reduced capacity with lane closures. The intersection of Ridgeway Avenue and Nordic Drive will also be kept open. After the completion of the first two stages, subsequent stages will follow for the work at the intersections of Ridgeway Avenue and Nordic Drive.
For safety's sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed sections of the road. If you have any questions or concerns during the course of construction, please contact Ron Loecher with the Iowa DOT listed below:
