ANKENY, Iowa- Through this fall construction work has continued on two big road projects on both ends of the metro Des Moines area. Workers are wrapping up a season of work on the expansion of lanes on I-35 in West Des Moines. Also work has been going on for three years on I-80 and 330 at Altoona.
“West Des Moines will be complete, we’ll have some landscaping and earthwork to do next year,” said Andy Loonan of the Iowa Department of Transportation. “Altoona will be another year of construction again all next year.”
Loonan said last week that due to the mild weather, workers had continued on both projects.
