A months-long construction project on Interstate 380 in Evansdale will require a nighttime lane closure on Thursday (July 28, 2016).

According to Iowa Department of Transportation officials, northbound traffic will be reduced to one lane near the Evansdale Drive interchange (Exit 68) beginning at 7 p.m. The lane will be closed until 6 a.m. Friday, weather permitting.

That stretch of I-380 shares its route with U.S Highway 20 and Iowa Highway 27.

IDOT officials said the outside lane closer for northbound I-380/Iowa 27 and westbound US 20 traffic is necessary due to guardrail work, which is part of a noise wall project that began in April. The existing 35-year-old noise wall is deteriorating, so crews are in the process of replacing the steel structure with a new precast concrete noise wall.
