The long-elusive Highway 100 extension from Edgewood Road to Highway 13 receives funding in Iowa Department of Transportation’s five-year plan.
In 2013, the DOT will continue to buy up property in the right of way of the highway with bid-letting set for September on the bridge piece of the project, Iowa DOT officials say. The project is slated to be complete in 2019.
The half-mile Highway 100 extension will complete the Highway 100 project, which now runs from Highway 13 at Marion into Cedar Rapids, where the highway is called Collins Road NE, and west of Interstate 380 to Edgewood Road NE.
