Beginning April 3, 2023, the Iowa DOT's contractor, Owen Contracting, will be starting the first stage of the IA 27 and US 218 ramp reconstruction project. The first stage will include reconstructing the outside westbound lanes of 218 before the interchange, and also reconstructing a segment on westbound IA 57 around the exit ramp. Below you will find maps with the closure area highlighted.
During this first stage, the IA 27/58 southbound exit ramp (exit towards UNI and Hudson) will be closed, with all other ramps open to traffic in a single lane reduced capacity. The DOT has placed a restricted width of 11'-0 on the US 218 exit ramp (exit towards Janesville and Waverly) during construction. 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:
