GRIMES — A traffic capacity improvement project that will add a third lane to Iowa 141 in each direction will require lane closures from Iowa 44 to 37th Street beginning Monday, May 15, until late October 2017, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Grimes construction office.
Southbound Iowa 141: Both lanes of traffic will be open weekday mornings from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Northbound Iowa 141: Both lanes of traffic will be open weekday afternoons from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Side roads will be closed during work at intersections and detours will be in place.
Motorists may experience travel delays and should allow additional time to reach their destination.
The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey the posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
