Interstate travelers and Council Bluffs residents that live near the I-80/I-29 and South Expressway interchange have seen a significant amount of construction activity this spring and summer. Over the past few months the DOT contractor working on the new I-80 westbound/I-29 northbound access ramp from the South Expressway has made significant progress. Dozens of trucks have brought in sand and dirt to build up the site of the future interstate access ramp. Heavy equipment used for spreading and shaping the foundation of the new interstate has been working non-stop.
