Highway Page Updates - 2003 (July-December)
- New terminus photo links were added for the former IA 156
and the former unsigned IA 424, as well as
Business IA 2 and Business
US 71, both in Clarinda, and Business US 61 in Keokuk.
- Jeff Morrison contacted many different counties' highway departments last week to find out
what happened to some of the recently decommissioned but unspotted state highways. There are
too many to list here, but all unsigned state highways except for IA
410, and IA 978 have been accounted for. (See
the Decommissioning Watch page for the complete list.) There were a
few surprises here, including the fact that the four former state highways in Louisa and
Des Moines counties -- 79,
and 305 -- are keeping their state highway numbers
(and as such I updated the County Roads page
to reflect this). In addition, Jeff found out that a Business
US 34 is being planned for New London (along the former IA
231) but not for the larger Mount Pleasant, which will be bypassed in 2004.
- A news item that I've neglected to mention until now: Akron has refused to accept jurisdiction
of IA 403. However, according to an
article in the December 11 Sioux City Journal, they have agreed to do "minimal" snow
removal this winter.
- I uploaded a table of active state highways, which
also includes lists of the ten longest north-south, east-west, and intrastate highways as
well as the ten shortest highways before and after the July 1 decommissionings.
- I added a terminus photo link to the former IA
397 while updating links to IA 57,
58, and 263
- The Des Moines Register reported
on Wednesday that the US 34 bypass of Fairfield has
been approved by the Transportation Commission, but completion may be delayed until 2008.
- I also updated the I-235 exit list to reflect recent
ramp closings and reopenings.
- Signs for IA 945 at the interchange with I-80
have finally been taken down as of yesterday.
- On a recent road trip, Jeff Morrison confirmed two more county road numbers for former
state highways in Benton County: most of IA 201
is now County Road W24, and IA 287 is now W14.
IA 363, on the other hand, probably will not
get a county road number since the city of Urbana was given most of the road; I changed the
listing to read "Local road." (Also, I have concluded that the former IA
199 -- the only other unaccounted spur in Benton County -- is now County Road E44, since
that designation continued from both of its ends.)
- Some old news that I just found out about: the Transportation Commission approved the
transfer of unsigned IA 331 (formerly part of
IA 5) to the city of West Des Moines at its October 14 meeting, according to this
DOT press release.
At this point it is unknown if the transfer has been completed or not.
November 27: Two updates on four-lane projects: the aforementioned US
151 expressway segment is three miles long and opened on October 14, according to
The Gazette of Cedar Rapids. Also, according to Jay Lehmann, the Avenue of the Saints
(US 218/IA 27)
segment that was dedicated on November 14 opened about four days after the ceremony.
- I drove US 151 between Anamosa and Cascade last Saturday,
after attending the Iowa-Minnesota football game in Iowa City earlier that day, to check out
how the four-lane project was progressing. The only new segment, at this point, is a two-mile
bypass of unincorporated Langworthy.
- The last Avenue of the Saints (US 218/IA
27) four-lane segment in north-central Iowa was scheduled to open last Friday.
Even though the ribbon cutting ceremony was held that day, the actual opening was delayed because
of rainy weather earlier this month. It could open as early as this coming Friday, or as late
as Thanksgiving. (News coverage: Waterloo Courier, November 16.)
- New county road numbers for former state highways, all courtesy of Lewis Schrodt:
L63 for IA 41, P33 for IA
66, and L55 for IA 242.
- Freeway Junctions updates:
- Nathan Bush let me know that signage on US 20 near Fort
Dodge has changed, while the county roads at the former IA 282 and 297 are still not signed
on US 20.
- According to J.D. Adams, though, County Road J14 (formerly IA 258) is signed on
- While in eastern Iowa last weekend for a wedding in Davenport I noticed that
IA 405 (X14) and IA
979 (F44) in Johnson County now have new county road numbers, but IA
252 and the east-west leg of IA 305 in Louisa County do not.
(And if County Road 99 is the new number for the former IA
99, there weren't any pentagons noting it.)
- According to this DOT press release, two miles of the Avenue of the Saints
(US 218/IA 27) opened
to traffic on Thursday. The last four-lane segment between I-35 and US 20 is expected to open
on November 14.
- I have received word from the DOT, via Dennis Swanson, that unsigned IA
390 and IA 478 have been transferred to
- Updates to Freeway Junctions: Minor updates to I-80 central and
I-280 based on what I saw last week, while Jeff Morrison noted that
Reinbeck is now signed on US 20 at Exit 215 even though County Road
S27 (formerly IA 359) still isn't. I also noted that a new rest area opened yesterday on
I-35 at Exit 159.
- Dave Roden spotted new county road numbers for the former IA
198 and IA 404; I also updated the
IA 79 listing. He also gave me an exit number for
the new IA 346/County Road B60 interchange at Nashua; I updated the Avenue
of the Saints north exit list. (Yes, even though I removed the orange "UNDER CONSTRUCTION" notes,
I'm aware that there are still some two-lane segments left.)
- I also updated the I-35 central exit list; the six-laning
between Ankeny and the I-80/235 interchange is now completed, while signage at the IA 160
exit has changed.
- I made some minor format changes to the Decommissioning Watch
- The four-lane link between Des Moines and Knoxville is complete. The Des Moines
Register reported Thursday that the last four-lane segment of
IA 5/92 was
scheduled to open yesterday. (Despite what the article says, though, there is no interchange
at IA 5 and County Road S45, formerly IA 181, south of Pleasantville; it's still a four-way
stop but there is a ramp for northbound IA 5 so traffic there doesn't have to stop.)
- I finally caught up with my backlog of photos from the first half of 2003, posting new
photos (including contributions from Jeff Morrison and Mark Odor) to the
Council Bluffs section, the
county road markers page, and
east Odds 'n' Ends pages.
- I added a new Photo Gallery section for Ames
today by moving two photos from the Odds & Ends section that previously housed the Ames photos,
replacing two older photos with newer and better shots, and adding eight new photos.
- The IA 5 bypass of Pleasantville opened sometime
this month, but as of today there's still a one-mile gap east of the split with IA 92, so
it will be later this fall before the expressway between Des Moines and Knoxville is
complete. (And as it turns out, the secret IA 368
also applies to an old IA 5 segment northwest of Pleasantville; whether it applies to the
just-bypassed segment through Pleasantville has yet to be confirmed.)
- I also confirmed today that IA 316 has been truncated north of a point
south of Runnells. And according to 511ia.org, the completion of the
IA 945 bridge repair project has been delayed to
mid-October, which may be why the signs at the south end were still up as of today.
- I added terminus photo links to two former state park spurs --
IA 134 (IV) and IA
186 (II). In addition, after Jeff Morrison pointed it out initially and after double-checking
maps, it appears that IA 194 did not follow present-day
County Road M70. Instead, it appears that it followed 16th Street in Clarinda, which goes
directly from what was then IA 2 (now Business IA 2) into the Clarinda Treatment Center.
- Mark Odor reports that new, more legible county line markers have been put up along
IA 330, one of which was for Story County, which
IA 330 only enters for about 400 feet. I added Story to the list of counties.
- A bit of somewhat old news, which I found out about today after searching Google News:
The Waterloo Courier reported in a
September 2 article that the US 218/IA
27 bypass of Nashua and another short segment southeast of Charles City opened on September 3.
(The exit list hasn't been updated since I don't know what signage is like at the new interchange
with IA 346 and County Road B60 is like, but if I or someone else finds out what it is I'll update
it.) The gaps between the two are scheduled to open later this fall to complete the four-lane Avenue
of the Saints link between I-35 and US 20.
- I added a terminus photo link for the former IA
349, and updated the link for the former IA 49.
- I have also received several e-mails from readers saying that the maps on
www.iowadotmaps.com contain an IA 534 north of
Mount Pleasant. IA 534 is a temporary designation, thus I do not plan to add
a listing for it. It's used for a road connecting old and new US 218 at the north bypass
interchange (Exit 45); when the north bypass of Mount Pleasant is completed next year it
will become part of US 34.
- I added three new photos to the Iowa
City section and two new photos (while replacing a third) of the Quad
Cities section of the Photo Gallery. In addition, although I didn't add any photos,
I updated captions on the Burlington,
Cedar Rapids, Dubuque,
Mason City, and
Waterloo/Cedar Falls sections to
reflect recent decommissionings.
- More new county road numbers: Jeff Morrison confirmed that the remainder of
IA 107 has been replaced by County Roads B65 and
S25, while Jay Lehmann pointed out that IA 122 east
of Mason City has been replaced by County Road B30.
- I added terminus/entrance photo links to the former IA 303,
IA 356 (I), US
136, I-280, I-480,
and I-680. In addition, I changed the links to all
Interstate and US highway listings to point to Neil Bratney's pages; his site includes links
to the national terminus photo pages at AARoads' and Dale Sanderson's sites.
- I also added a link to Matt Salek's I-35 in Minnesota exit list from my I-35
- I added 26 new photos to the Des
Moines section of the Photo Gallery. These include photos of the new SPUI at I-35 and Mills
Civic Parkway, the I-80 and 74th Street interchange in West Des Moines, some
street-to-street interchanges, and other sights from the first half of 2003.
- More county road confirmations: Lewis Schrodt found other designations for the remainder
of IA 49 to follow up on the previous update of that
listing; Jay Lehmann noted that the north-south segment of IA
107 between Clear Lake and Thornton is now County Road S25; and Kyle Johnson found out that
the rest of former IA 923 is now County Road W64
(in addition, the "HIGHWAY 921" street
signs in Iowa City are gone now).
- At Freeway Junctions, I added a County Road R61 shield to Exit 139 at the
central I-35 exit list;
it isn't signed on I-35 (hence the parentheses) but Jeff Morrison pointed out that it
multiplexes with D41 as it crosses I-35, separating east of the interchange.
- Although signs are still up at the south end as of Saturday, Mark Odor received
confirmation from the DOT that IA 945 has, for
the most part, been decommissioned. (The north end is no longer signed as of last Monday.)
The overpass over I-80 is currently undergoing repair work that's scheduled for completion
in mid-September, and in all likelihood the IA 945 signs will be taken down after that work
- It turns out that there are several more unsigned highways -- all of which were former
segments of roads that were bypassed by newer roads that opened in 2002 -- that survived the
July 1 purge. Dennis Swanson inquired with the DOT about two of them -- IA
478 (old US 63) in New Hampton and IA 390 through
Plainfield, and they said that both of them are still active even though there are transfer
agreements in place. (In the case of IA 478, I changed the name of the page but not the file, since
I would have had to change hundreds of links if I did.) Other unsigned highways that were added
Maps of all of these can be found on the newly-updated county
maps at www.iowadotmaps.com.
- IA 312 (old US 65 near the Engledinger Marsh)
- IA 331 (old IA 5 in West Des Moines)
- IA 368 (old IA 5 in Hartford)
- I also uploaded some new exit lists after receiving permission from Matt Salek to do
lists for the rest of I-35 and US 20 in central Iowa (he will continue to do Minnesota).
The new lists are:
All relevant links have also been updated.
- County road updates: IA 49 north of Bedford is
now County Road N44, according to Lewis Schrodt (at this time it is unknown if the whole
road has this designation), while IA 956 is now
County Road Y68, according to Bret Zahina; he also says that IA
963 was recently changed from Y35 to D35 for some reason.
- As promised, I drove the new freeway segment of US 20 yesterday and went through
Waterloo and Cedar Rapids before heading back. I extended the exit
list westward to cover this new segment.
- Other exit list updates: signage at exits 19A (northbound) and 20A (southbound) on
I-380 have been changed to read "TO BUSINESS US 151,"
which makes sense considering that Business US 151 follows 1st Avenue and not any of the roads
the signs mention; similarly, Kyle Johnson found out that Exit 240 on I-80 now
reads "TO US 6."
- I also found out new county road numbers for IA
82 (V66), the last segment of 131 (V40),
279 (W28), 283
(D48), and 920 (D62 and W6E).
As of yesterday new numbers for IA 201, 287, and 363 -- all in Benton County -- have
not been posted. Also, IA 928 is signed as
County Road D25 (not D20) at I-35; the D20 designation that was reported earlier may exist west
of Webster City.
- The long-awaited freeway segment of US 20 between
IA 14 and US 65 opened today. Jeff Morrison attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony and
has put up some
photo pages covering the event. On this trip, he found out that:
Tomorrow I will head up to the area and verify the exit signage; on Sunday I will likely
extend the exit list westward to cover this new segment.
- The old segment of US 20, as I expected, became an extension of IA
- New county road numbers for IA 215,
and 941 have been posted.
- The north-south segment of IA 928 became County
Road R75 (the rest of it is D25).
- Jim Niday pointed out that I missed a few county roads in the listings for the Delaware
Crossing, Old O'Brien, and River Bluffs Scenic Byways on the Scenic
and Historic Routes pages; those listings have been fixed.
- Kyle Johnson notes that County Road W15 has replaced the north-south segment of the former
IA 77; also, according to Dennis Gormley, County Road W38
has replaced the former IA 109.
- I added a terminus photo link for the former IA 111.
- I've uploaded new highway shield images for all highway listings except IA 945, which is
scheduled to be decommissioned soon. They were created
from raw images generated by David Kendrick's Shields
Up program; from there I edited them (using Windows Paint and Adobe PhotoDeluxe, the program
I use to crop and modify scanned photos) and compared them to actual highway photos to make
them look like the real things. Although there are variations in the font series and sizes
that Iowa uses on shields, I used the standards for US and state highways: FHWA Series B for
three-digit roads, Series C for two-digit roads, and Series D for one-digit roads. Right now
I do not plan to replace any of the images on the exit lists.
- Although there still aren't any signs for IA 415
along the new Saylorville Drive yet, all IA 415 shields between IA 17 and Polk City have been
taken down as of Saturday.
- While looking at the archives of Johnston's local weekly newspaper at the Johnston Public
Library on Saturday, I found out the decommissioning date of IA
401, which resulted in the extension of IA 28: July 1,
- IA 68 is now County Road S70, according to Kyle
- After contacting the DOT, a reader (who asked not to be credited) found out that the Avenue
of the Saints will open to four lanes around Donnellson and to two lanes from the south end
of the bypass to a point two miles north of the Missouri state line this fall; other four-lane
segments south of Mount Pleasant will open in 2004 and 2005. The US
218, IA 27, and IA
394 listings have been updated.
- The new interchange at IA 141 and NW Saylorville
Drive opened yesterday. Although Saylorville Drive and Bridge Road were supposed to be
parts of a relocated IA 415, with the segment
north of Polk City becoming a county road, signage along 415 itself had not changed,
and the exit signs on IA 141 are the only indication that the new road will become 415.
I don't know when the changes will happen.
- Signs at both ends of IA 931 have been taken
down as of today; Jeff Morrison found that the signs at the east end were gone by yesterday
and I noted the same thing at the west end today (although it's still posted at I-35 and on
its off-ramps). IA 945, on the other hand, is
still posted at its south end -- for now.
- This past Saturday I drove west to Adel and Stuart and eventually southward to Winterset,
where I found out that the recently-decommissioned segment of US
6 is now County Road F60, IA 925 is now F65,
and IA 322 is now P68. Other new county
road numbers: G18 for the decommissioned piece of IA
83 and V49 for the former IA 297, both
spotted by Jeff Morrison, and J40 for IA 103,
which Dale Sanderson posted on misc.transport.road after corresponding with a Lee County
- I added terminus photo links to IA 204,
205, and 206
-- all of which are gone now, but they were photographed while they were active highways --
and Business IA 163. I also updated links
to former highways 102 (II),
142 (II), and 207.
- Jeff Morrison looked through the University of Nebraska-Omaha's topographical map
collection recently and I updated these listings to reflect his findings:
- A City US 18 in Mason City existed on a 1959 map.
At this stage it is unknown how long it existed.
- A short freeway segment of US 20 between the former
IA 248 (the road serving the mental health institute) and IA 150 opened in either late 1981
or 1982 to complete the bypass of Independence. (The 1982 topo map showed the segment west
of IA 150 as under construction, as did the 1981 state transportation map, which showed a
"fall 1981" projected completion date; it was shown as completed on the 1983
- I added the note about the 1965 relocation of IA 64
to that listing; it was multiplexed with US 151 at the time and included with that highway's
listing, but not 64.
- IA 256 became a local road at decommissioning,
not County Road B55 (which is half a mile to the north).
- IA 27 (III), IA
167, and IA 236 made turns from their county road alignments
before ending in their respective communities.
- The north end of IA 411, which probably became
a state highway so the Highway Commission could build a new bridge over the Iowa River, was
at present-day County Road F15.
- I added a new Photo Gallery page
about my July 13 trip to and from Topeka, KS, for the Great Plains-area roadgeek meet.
In the near future I will add a new page for Ames and add photos to other existing pages
that I've taken during the first half of 2003 (and a few that Jeff Morrison has submitted).
- There's a new county road number for the former IA
238 after all, according to Kurt Berge: M20.
- I removed the parentheses from the G5T shield at Exit 44 on IA
163; John Brocato confirmed that it replaced the former IA 102 shields on the signs at
- It looks like IA 438 (old US 218 in Mount
Pleasant) won't be a state highway much longer: the city council accepted jurisdiction on
- Correction on the former IA 386: Bret Zahina
found out that the former segment that ran southwestward from the John Deere Dubuque Works
to US 52/IA 3 is now County Road D10 (the north-south segment, which runs from Deere to the
common end with 52/3 and IA 386, is Y35).
- More new county road numbers:
- According to J.D. Adams, IA 204 is now
J20 and R69, while IA 294 is now R15.
- Jeff Morrison contacted the Hardin County engineer's office on Monday, and found out
the new county road numbers for the former IA 215
(S62), IA 299 (S55), IA
359 (S27 and D38), and IA 941 (D20).
- Terminus photo links have been added for the former IA
266 and 306 (their ends were photographed
in their last days as state highways). I also updated links to the
IA 94, 100,
and 258 photo pages.
- A couple of anti-climactic new county road numbers to report: the
former IA 428 is now County Road Y31, according
to Nick Wilwert, and the Waterloo Courier mentioned the new number for the
former IA 214 -- County Road T19 -- in
Courier article today, as well as an
article in the July 25 Fort Dodge Messenger, both mentioned that the long-awaited freeway
segment of US 20 between US 65 and IA 14 will open on August 22.
However, I have not received word on what the new number for the old US 20 will be.
- I made some minor updates to the Scenic and Historic
Routes page, and I finally updated all exit lists that had
decommissioned highways on them.
- Look for some new photos (finally!) in the Photo Gallery in August. First I will open
a special section dedicated to my trip to the July 13 roadgeek meet in Topeka, KS, and then
I will update the existing pages after that.
July 23: More new county road numbers to report:
- IA 157 is now County Road A21, according
to Dennis Swanson.
- According to Bret Zahina, the former IA 386 and
IA 963 are both known as County Road Y35, while
IA 113 is now County Road Z20.
- According to Ed Breed, the former IA 94 is now
County Road W36 outside of Cedar Rapids. And IA 91
is now County Road L14, according to Michael Ehret, but there is no county road number for the
former IA 238.
- I added an entrance photo link to US 71 and a terminus
photo link for Business US 151 (I had it under IA 922,
but not under Business 151). In addition, I added links to Neil Bratney's Sioux City bypass
exit list under the I-129, US
20, and US 75 listings.
- New county road replacements for former state highways:
- D22 for the former IA 939 and W40 for the former
both of which were mentioned in a Waterloo
Courier article on July 13.
- G76 for the former IA 207, which I spotted on the
way to last Sunday's Great Plains-area roadgeek meet in Topeka, KS. (Photos from that are coming
- W60 for the former rural segment of IA 965,
pointed out by Ed Breed.
- IA 273 is no longer signed, per Kyle Johnson,
but there are no county road markers up. On the other hand, IA
931 and 945 are still up as Mark Odor drove past them
- Some new terminus photo links have been added:
IA 7 (finally completing the single-digit highways),
US 169, and Business US 20 in Fort Dodge.
- Followup from the July 10 update regarding US 30: Dave
Vetter stated that the extra two lanes between Dow City and the Denison airport were removed
as part of a 1970s resurfacing project; the former westbound lanes were never replaced after
two-way traffic was moved onto the former eastbound lanes.
- More new county road numbers:
- F16 for the former IA 382 and F58 for the
former IA 927 (although it is currently signed in Cedar
County only), both thanks to Nick Wilwert
- G58 for the former IA 349, thanks to J.D. Adams
- An extension of D20 for what was left of IA 928,
courtesy of Chris Dobel
- The former IA 982 has a new county road number:
D25. Kurt Berge and Michael Treinen both pointed out that the Sioux City Journal ran
a story on this yesterday. In addition, Michael pointed out that
IA 300 and IA
301 are no longer signed on I-29.
- According to Dave Vetter, US 30 between Dow City and Denison
was indeed four lanes from the 1950s to the mid-1970s before the two extra lanes west of the
Denison airport were removed. He also pointed out the existence of another "wrong-way" multiplex
of IA 141 and IA
175 in Mapleton, as well as new county road numbers for the former IA
36 (M64 and D59), IA 161 (E60 and N33), and
IA 286 (N41 and E16).
- I added a terminus photo link for Business Loop I-35
in Clear Lake.
July 7: Updates from Jeff Morrison's road trip through Pottawattamie and
Mills counties yesterday:
- US 275 between Council Bluffs and Glenwood is gone
now, and so are IA 41, IA
242, and IA 385 in Mills County. None of
these roads have new county road markers yet, and US 275's multiplexes with I-29 and US 34
are not currently signed.
- Business US 34 signs have been taken down in
Glenwood, possibly as a result of IA 949's
- These decommissioned roads in Pottawattamie County now have county road numbers:
IA 191 (now G8L), US
275 (now L35), and IA 370 west of old US 275
- I updated the 900 series page to reflect the
- Other decommissioning-related updates:
- En route to Cedar Rapids for the 4th, I noticed that all spurs in Benton County along US
30 -- IA 82, 131,
279, and 287 -- are
no longer signed. However, except for 200 (which is now V42), no new county road numbers (if any)
have been posted. On the way back, I checked on IA 419,
which is now County Road V36.
- Chris Geelhart also reported that IA 122 has officially
been truncated at Mason City's east city limits. In addition, IA
147 is now County Road B45, and per Chris Dobel, IA 383 is
now County Road D65.
- The former IA 105 will no longer be the only county road that kept its former state highway
number. The July 2 Muscatine
Journal reported that Louisa and Des Moines counties will call IA
99 County Road 99.
July 3: I uploaded revised US highway listings (plus I-29 and
I-80), adding or updating some historical data plus noting the recent
changes to US 6 and US 275. The 900s page will
be updated after the July 4 holiday.
- I uploaded revised highway listings between 340 and 475, and fixed a few minor bugs
that Jeff Morrison pointed out on some of the other pages.
- I received confirmation from Mark Maxfield that IA
181 is now County Road S45. J.D. Adams also e-mailed me with new county road numbers
for IA 258 (J14) and IA
266 (J12); he also confirmed that signs for IA 49 and
IA 115 have been taken down, but no county road
markers have replaced them yet.
July 1: In a way, a new era has begun at the Iowa Highways Page. With the
decommissioning of 700 miles of state highways effective today, plus some additional
historic findings that Jeff Morrison and I have found recently, I have begun a cleanup
of the route listings.
- Updated highway listings from IA 1 through IA 339 were uploaded today. I will
get around to the other state highways and all US highways eventually, hopefully by the
end of the week. In the meantime, the Decommissioning Watch
page will continue to be updated whenever someone spots the removal of signs; thanks to
everyone who has contacted me so far!
- One thing to note: many recently-decommissioned listings list the roads that replaced
them as "County road (number is unconfirmed at this time)." Even though some
replacement county roads will be obvious, others won't be; I would still appreciate
observations of which county road signs are up. If you know what the new county road numbers
are (if there are any), please let me know.
The only county road numbers we have confirmed so far -- including those for pages
that haven't been updated yet -- are:
- IA 97, now S56 (confirmed by Jeff Morrison after
correspondence with Lucas County)
- IA 133, now unnumbered (spotted by Jeff Morrison)
- IA 183 south of Missouri Valley, now L20 (spotted by
