Will be moving actual traffic in Summer or Fall of 2020. A historic swap occurred in 2013, between the City of Dubuque and the Iowa Department of Transportation that will allow this project to be funded and built.
More recently, IDOT has funded all of the paving to complete the 4 lane road project. Most of the grading is complete, most of the bridges are done and paving will begin THIS summer!
Downtown traffic will change a lot following the opening of the SW Arterial as US 52 will no longer be routed through our downtown neighborhoods. It’s going to be a game changer.
