The Signs are Everywhere.
The Signs are Everywhere. From blocks of housing rebuilt painstakingly by volunteers and residents, to the new U.S. Courthouse flanking the river, to a state of the art convention center and new hotel, bookending our vibrant downtown with the New Bohemia Main Street District - this is a time of hope and optimism for our community. With more than 3/4 of a billion dollars invested in our community, the Signs of Progress are all around us.
At the five year mark, this is the time to look forward. This is not only a time to see how much is yet to be done - but also to pursue that vision of a vibrant and urban hometown. One we’re all proud to call home.

Status: Completion in 2016
The Iowa 100 extension will consist of a four lane highway that begins at Edgewood Road and the existing Iowa 100, extends west over the river and then south along 80th street and connects to Highway 30. Interchanges proposed at Edgewood Road, old Iowa 94 (Covington road), E Avenue and Highway 30. The project will be done in phases with the first phase to include the Cedar River bridge and the first four mile segment from Edgewood to Covington Road. The second phase will be from Covington Road to Hwy 30. The traffic that normally uses Edgewood Road and I-380 will use this route to provide safety and reduce traffic congestion. It is projected this road will have an average daily traffic of 40,000 vehicles.
