IDOT funds 4-lane project in Dubuque

A major transportation project in Dubuque will soon be completed following the Iowa Department of Transportation (IDOT) Commission’s adoption of a five-year budget at a meeting in Des Moines Tuesday morning. 

The IDOT’s five-year budget includes funding to pave all four lanes of the US52/Southwest Arterial – a six-mile roadway that will connect US20 at Seippel Rd. to US 61/151 in 2019. According to a news release, before today, the project’s budget included funding for all project components and grading for the final four-lane design, but only funded paving for two lanes. 

City of Dubuque officials asked IDOT officials last summer to consider including an additional $16 million as part of the department’s fiscal year 2019 budget to allow for paving all four lanes in 2019. According to the release, the request followed project savings of $13 million due to contracts coming in under budget, and other cost savings that would be realized by paving all four lanes at once. 

All four lanes are expected to be paved in late 2019.
