ISU-IOWA DOT WEB SITE UPDATES ROAD WORK

AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State University's Center for Transportation Research and Education (CTRE) and the Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT) have developed a Web site to advise motorists of Iowa DOT road construction projects throughout the season.

In a typical construction season, the Iowa DOT has up to 500 road construction work zones set up statewide. The Web site features an interactive map of the state, which provides regularly updated information to motorists on specific roadwork projects. The information includes anticipated duration of the work, impacts on and suggestions for motorists, detour routes, and specific details of the project.

The site can be viewed at www.ctre.iastate.edu/roadwork2001/, or from the link on the Iowa DOT home page (www.dot.state.ia.us).
