Highway Page Updates -- 2004 (July-December)

December 28: I added a note to the title page about the deactivation of the cjb.net URL. In the near future I will update and add information from my Christmas trip through southeast Iowa.

December 19:

December 8: The dedication ceremony was last Friday, but a Missouri DOT press release states that the IA 27 bridge over the Des Moines River opened today. (An additional 7 miles of four-lane highway, the newly-christened MO 27, has also opened south of the bridge.) While at it I updated all listings that have links to Mark Roberts' site.

November 28: Having run through eastern Iowa for Thanksgiving, it's time for some updates:

November 22: The Mount Pleasant News reported today that some southeast Iowa highway projects will not be finished by the end of 2004 because of poor weather. Those projects include US 34 between Fairfield and Mount Pleasant (including the Mount Pleasant bypass) and the Avenue of the Saints between Mount Pleasant and Donnellson. However, the new IA 27 bridge across the Des Moines River will be dedicated on December 3 and may open to traffic by the end of the year.

November 21: Minor update to the I-235 exit list: the 63rd Street exit has reopened westbound but closed eastbound.
