US 61
FROM: I-80
Davenport, IA
TO: Iowa/Wisconsin
state line
Dubuque, IA

NOTE: Exits are not numbered on the Dubuque portion of the expressway. The triplex with US 52 follows US 52's mile numbers (44-47), but for continuity purposes, US 61's are listed instead. Tenth-miles are given in Dubuque because of the close spacing between exits and intersections. All exits from US 52 to the Wisconsin state line are in Dubuque.

Only at-grade intersections with posted destinations or major points of interest are noted in the segment between Maquoketa and the US 151 split because of the long stretch between interchanges. Stoplights are noted on the US 61/151 multiplex.

Linked routes (click on the appropriate shield): I-80, US 61 south, US 151, US 20
