Next week, motorists in Iowa will notice a small portion of Highway 30 east of Ames will be closed overnight as crews continue to work on the new overpass.

The Iowa Department of Transportation will have crews working on the highway a mile east of Interstate 35 between 580th Street and 600th Street from 9 p.m. Monday, Feb. 26, to 5 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27. The highway will reopen throughout the day Tuesday but close agaion at 9 p.m. Feb. 27 through 5 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 28.

The highway will be closed while construction crews place bridge beams for a new frontage road, according to Jenny Hoskins with the Iowa DOT Jefferson construction office.

"While it is rare, it is possible for beams to fall while the contractor is maneuvering them into position," Hoskins said. "We do not want to risk anyone being harmed should something unexpected occur."

Construction crews will also close the same section of U.S. 30 for two additional nights from 9 a.m. March 4, to 5 a.m. March 5 and at 9 p.m. March 5 to 5 a.m. March 6, so beams can be placed over eastbound U.S. 30.
