Iowa DOT Approves Funding to Build All Four Lanes of Southwest Arterial

It’s now official: the Southwest Arterial will be fully built as a four-lane highway. The Iowa Department of Transportation Commission this morning approved its five-year budget plan, which includes enough money to fully build the roadway. Up to now, the DOT had approved funding to initially construct just two lanes of the Southwest Arterial, with the other two lanes to come later. But an additional $16 million in funding has become available, mostly due to the DOT’s $13 million savings from projects coming in under budget. The Southwest Arterial is still expected to be open to traffic by the end of next year.
