After months of delay, the Alice’s road interchange project on I-80 is finally moving ahead again.

The Des Moines Register reports the Federal Highway Administration signed off on an environmental study in the area last week.

The project was delayed this spring when an endangered bat was discovered in the area.

Officials say the bats won’t be affected by the project.

Engineers are now drawing up final plans and will seek bids to start the project next spring.
