    Quick HWY 30 Question

    How much of HWY 30 is 4 and how much is 2-lane between Marshalltown and Cedar Rapids?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Quick HWY 30 Question

    I think it's almost all 2 lane, if not all of it.

    Not much from Tama to several miles west of CR, last I recall. I don't think they've done more building yet.

    I would get to at least Tama on 4-lane?

    There's just 4-lane around M'town, Legrand, a little near the casino, and then about 5 miles West of C.R.

    Re: Quick HWY 30 Question

    Make that trip alot.

    Marshalltown to the Casino is all 4 lane.

    The first 24 miles from Tama to CR are 2-lane. The remaining 21 miles is 4-lane.


    I removed it.

    From Marshalltown to the casino, anyway. That's where it ends.

    Once upon a time, US 30 was supposed to be four lane from Chicago to Omaha by 2010. I don't see that happening.

    Hmm, so do I. Apparently I don't pay attention. I thought there was some 2-lane between Legrand and Tama.

    Nothing against it but wouldn't that be kinda stupid since I-80 does the same thing?

    They finished that about three or four years ago, when the bridges and bypass were completed. Had to have 4-lane to the casino from DM, after all.

    Re: Quick HWY 30 Question

    Last week was the first time in 5 years that I had taken 30 to Ames. I had forgotten how much I despise the two lane from DeWitt to east of CR and then the two lane from the Hwy 218 intersection all the way to Tama.
