Designated: June 4, 1935 Decommissioned: July 1, 2003
Original western terminus: Spillville; it was truncated at the east city limits in 1980
Original eastern terminus: US 52 north of Calmar
Paving history: Unpaved at designation, it was paved in 1955.
Replaced by: County Road B16. It was originally designated as a spur from Protivin to US 52, utilizing what is now B16 west of Spillville, but Protivin wanted a direct connection to Cresco instead, so the Highway Commission agreed to truncate 325 at Spillville and extend IA 139 southward a day later. On July 9 the Highway Commission denied Spillville's request to get the Protivin segment back.

Terminus photos

Counties: Polk, Jasper, Story, Marshall
Cities along route: Altoona, Bondurant, Albion

NHS: Entire route
Expressway segments:
  • 35 miles, from the southwestern terminus to US 30

  • Multiplexes: 15 miles with US 65, from I-80 to the junction with IA 117 northwest of Mingo
    History
    Designated: 1947, to a former segment of US 30 through Marshalltown after US 30 was re-routed to its south
    Paving history: The entire road was paved at the time of designation.
    Major alignment changes:
  • January 1, 1969: Extended southwestward along the former IA 64 segment between US 30 and US 65.
  • December 26, 1989: Re-routed around Marshalltown via the former IA 233 and County Road S75. The old route outside of Marshalltown became County Road E41.
  • December 2012: Extended southwestward from IA 117 to I-80 along an existing expressway segment as a second number with US 65.

  • Upgrades:
  • October 10, 2002: 5-mile expressway segment, between a point northeast of Melbourne and US 30, opens
  • November 22, 2002: 15-mile expressway segment between the southwestern terminus and Melbourne opens
  • Notes
  • This diagonal road in central Iowa was built from Des Moines to Marshalltown in the mid-1930s and was originally signed as IA 88 (I) before becoming part of the cross-state IA 64 in 1939. As a result of the Great Renumbering of 1969, the diagonal had two separate numbers — US 65 and IA 330 — until December of 2012, when IA 330 was extended southwestward to I-80 to give the diagonal expressway a continuous number (similar to what was done with IA 27 and the extended IA 163).
  • The segment from US 30 to IA 14 north of Marshalltown is expected to be upgraded to "Super-2" traffic in the future, although funding has yet to be programmed; the combination of US 20, IA 14, and IA 330 is a commonly-used route between Waterloo/Cedar Falls and Des Moines.
  • According to Jeff Morrison, the north end of IA 330 was temporarily in a different place as a result of a construction project circa 1995: "When IA 14 was detoured between Marshalltown and [County Road] E18 using [US] 30, [IA] 330, [County Road] S75, and E18, the "End 330" was posted at the S75 junction north of Albion. (They did not want anyone going to 14 while it was being rebuilt, and since the destination of 330 is 14 anyway, it met its goal north of Albion.)"
  • Iowa 331 (I)
    Designated: August 6, 1935 Decommissioned: 1967
    Original western terminus: Eldridge
    Original eastern terminus: US 61 north of Davenport
    Paving history: Unpaved at designation, it was paved in 1966 (just before decommissioning).
    Replaced by: County road (now numbered F45)
    Iowa 331 (II)
    Designated: October 10, 2002 Decommissioned: 2005
    Original western terminus: A point between I-35 and South 42nd Street in West Des Moines
    Original eastern terminus: IA 28 in Des Moines
    Replaced by: Local road (Army Post Road)
    This was the designation for a former segment of IA 5 in West Des Moines bypassed when the last segment of the freeway opened. The DOT approved transfer of the road to the city on October 14, 2003, but the transfer was not completed until sometime in 2005.
    Iowa 332
    Designated: August 20, 1935 Decommissioned: 1980
    Original northern terminus: IA 9 east of Forest City
    Original southern terminus: Pilot Knob State Park
    Paving history: Unpaved at designation, the road remained gravel at the time of decommissioning (but has since been paved).
    Replaced by: Unnumbered county road (205th Avenue). The Highway Commission originally numbered this road IA 235 on July 10, but that number was given to a spur to Rhodes instead.
    Iowa 333
    Length: 1.6 miles/2.5 kilometers
    Western terminus: I-29 (exit #1) west of Hamburg
    Eastern terminus: US 275 in Hamburg

    Counties: Fremont
    History
    Designated: September 4, 1935, as a spur from US 59 eastward to Northboro
    Paving history: There were no paved segments at designation. The segment west of US 59 was paved in 1964 and decommissioned after that. The segment between US 59 and the Fremont/Page county line was paved in 1976, six years after it was given to Fremont County, while the segment in Page County remained gravel until it was paved (and subsequently decommissioned) in 1980. The post-1980 segment was entirely paved.
    Major alignment changes:
  • June 30, 1937: Extended eastward to IA 208 north of Blanchard; the spur to Northboro became IA 343.
  • June 7, 1939: Extended westward from US 59 to US 275 in Hamburg
  • 1942: Extended eastward from IA 208 through College Springs to US 71 south of Shambaugh, following the former IA 84 (I) along the way.
  • 1948: Straightened to run due eastward from US 59 to US 71 north of Braddyville; the segment through College Springs was turned over to Page County.
  • 1951: Realigned, again, to follow the former IA 84 (I) through College Springs.
  • November 1, 1964: Truncated west of US 59 (and signed as County Road J64 after the present-day county road numbering system was adopted), leaving only the segment between US 59 and US 71.
  • 1968: Straightened to run due eastward from US 59 to US 71. The old segments north of College Springs became County Road J52 and Nutmeg Avenue, while the segment between College Springs and relocated IA 333 was the unsigned IA 999 until 1980 (it is now Maple Avenue).
  • 1970: Segment between US 59 and the Fremont/Page county line decommissioned; it became County Road J64.
  • 1980: Extended westward to I-29 at Hamburg, and truncated east of US 59; the segment east of there, which reopened as a paved road on December 6, became County Road J64. This segment ran parallel to the Missouri state line, with only one mile separating the two. It became a state highway as the result of a proposed exchange of roads announced in February — Fremont County would take IA 184 in exchange for an extension of IA 145 and a new connecting road between I-29 and US 275. On June 19, a state appeals board ruled that the DOT had to keep IA 184 while the county could take IA 42, but the board upheld a lower appeals board's ruling that the state also had to take County Road J64 between I-29 and US 275, which it did not want. While the DOT unsuccessfully appealed that ruling, the Fremont County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution on October 29 stating that J64 became the state's responsibility on October 10. (The legal holdup may explain IA 333's absence from the 1981 state transportation map.)
  • July 1, 2003: Truncated east of US 275 in Hamburg. The old segment between US 275 and US 59 became County Road J64 (its pre-1980 designation).
  • Iowa 334 (I)
    Designated: October 16, 1935 Decommissioned: 1980
    Original western terminus: US 63 in northern Bremer County
    Original eastern terminus: Frederika
    Paving history: Unpaved at designation, it was paved on a new alignment in 1955.
    Replaced by: County Road C16
    Iowa 334 (II)
    This designation was given to the former segment of US 34 from Ottumwa through Agency to the junction with IA 16 north of Eldon that was bypassed when a new four-lane segment opened in October 2006. While it appeared as a black line on the 2007 state transportation map, it appeared as a county road on the DOT's Wapello County PDF map dated January 1, 2007, implying a turnover to local jurisdictions.
    Iowa 335 (I)
    Designated: October 29, 1935 Decommissioned: 1980
    Original northern terminus: Dawson
    Original southern terminus: IA 141 in northwestern Dallas County

    Iowa 337 (II)
    Designated: 2000 Decommissioned: 2001
    This unsigned former segment of US 218 between the north end of the Charles City bypass and US 18 in Charles City was designated after the bypass opened in August 2000. It was turned over to local jurisdictions in 2001 but remains signed as part of Business US 218.
    Iowa 337 (III)
    This was the designation for a former segment of US 151 southwest of Monticello (through the unincorporated town of Langworthy) that was bypassed by an expressway segment in 2003. It was turned over to Jones County by the end of 2004.
