Highway 20 Overnight Closures Begin This Week
A portion of one of the federal highways that serve Dubuque will be closed tonight, though it has nothing to do with the weather. As we first told you last week, the eastbound lanes of US Highway 20 will be closed during the overnight hours this week. The closure will begin near the western edge of Dubuque’s city limits. Crews from the Iowa Department of Transportation will be setting bridge girders over the highway as a part of the Southwest Arterial project. Eastbound traffic will be detoured around the area using North Cascade and Cedar Cross roads. The closure will be in place from 10:00 PM until 5:00 AM each of the nights through at least Friday morning. An additional closure could happen Friday night into Saturday if the work isn’t finished.
