U.S. 275/Iowa 92 Interchange
Council Bluffs, IA
The I-29/U.S. 275/IA 92 (I-29/U.S. 275) Interchange reconstruction is scheduled to occur between 2014 and 2016. The project includes reconstruction of I-29, from 1.3 miles south of U.S. 275 to just north of the U.S. 275 ramps, and U.S. 275 from Metro Mall Drive east to Harry Langdon Boulevard including the I-29/U.S. 275 interchange in Council Bluffs. The project will also include the consolidation of CBEC and BNSF railroad operations into a new common corridor west of Mosquito Creek under I-29 and IA 92.
The proposed construction will consist of removal of the existing bridges and portions of the existing roadway embankments and the construction of new roadway embankments, walking trail, bridge structures and other features. Six bridges will be reconstructed including I-29 northbound and southbound over Mosquito Creek, U.S. 275 eastbound and westbound over Mosquito Creek, and U.S. 275 eastbound and westbound over I-29. The reconstruction involves raising the interstate and U.S. 275 to accommodate the new railroad corridor for the railroad relocation project, which will require ramp closures and two-way, two-lane traffic on U.S. 275 during construction.
