Construction work on I-80 near Annawan started Monday, May 6. Eagle Painting and Maintenance Company has the $196,000 contract to clean and paint the structural steel on the structure carrying E. 2500th Street over I-80.

The structure is located 2.8 miles west of Annawan. Lane closures on I-80 westbound and eastbound will be required to complete the work, with E. 2500th Street remaining open to two-way traffic. This project is scheduled to be completed by early June 2019.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
