AMES, Iowa-- The Iowa Department of Transportation says work on an Interstate 35 to Highway 30 flyover in Ames takes a big step forward next week as the first concrete pour is done on the bridge deck.
DOT District Engineer Jesse Tibodeau says the bridge at Highway 30 will be a safer way to get off Interstate 35 in Ames.
"Anyone going from Des Moines to Ames won't have to take the loop. It'll be a much safer movement onto Highway 30 and eliminates the weaving on northbound I-35"
Tibodeau says the flyover bridge is on schedule to be done in September.
