Next Week I-29 Northbound and Southbound Traffic to Split from Argusville to North of Gardner
October 7, 2016
Next week last major traffic shift for roadway reconstruction project
All the concrete for the newly reconstructed southbound lanes of Interstate 29 (I-29) has achieved designed strength and motorists will soon be carried on their respected direction of travel. Currently, traffic is being carried head-to-head on the northbound lanes of I-29.
By mid-next week, crews will be splitting the northbound and southbound I-29 traffic to carry one lane in each direction from north of Argusville (exit 79) to two miles north of Gardner interchange (exit 86). Each single lane of traffic will be carried on the outside driving lane.
Traffic will be limited to a single lane in each direction for the next month while crews complete final project needs in the median and ramp areas. Remaining project work includes removal of temporary connections, permanent roadway striping, and seeding and mulching as well as recovery of project plant site.
As project work wraps up, traffic safety devices will start to be removed to shorten the lane closures in each direction.
Throughout the work zone, motorists can expect:
- Speeds reduced to 65 mph from 75 mph
- Argusville and Gardner interchanges to be accessible
- Slower traffic when other vehicles or trucks exit & enter into lane closures and/or cross-overs
This summer crews removed the old southbound roadway of I-29 and completed the placement of eight box culverts that are under the new 10 miles of driving surface.
Project work started in mid-April and will continue through November, weather permitting.
Please remove distractions and keep your eyes on the road.
