    Changes coming for I35/Hwy 30 exit

    Have to say this is a long time coming, that exit can be nerve racking sometimes: http://www.kcci.com/news/changes-ahe...hange/37816252

    This is good. I've always thought it would take more fatalities to bring changes.

    It's just absurd to try merge in gaining speed while others are using the same space to slow their space and merge out.

    The video says the goal is to have it finished by end of 2018 so I assume work might get started on it this year even if that is the case

    I like the flyover idea, but they really need one going from I-35 N to 30 W....that turn around is horrible on game days.

    Isn't that what the flyover is for?

    On a side note: is there a site that lists out all of these projects that are going on? Or business development projects (what's planning on going in where)?

    Thats the plan. It will be just like I-380 S to 30E in Cedar Rapids.

    Some things can often be found here, that is where news links usually go...upcoming meetings usually with some schematic drawings:
    http://www.news.iowadot.gov/pim/

    This 30/35: http://www.news.iowadot.gov/pim/2016...b-16-2016.html


    (Older versions of the 35/30 options...If you go here and search "Story", you can see the other 30/35 alternatives considered http://www.iowadot.gov/pim/displayArchive.html This looks like Alt 6 Phase 1.)
