Construction of the Interstate 80 interchange at Dubuque Street in Iowa City is scheduled to pick up again at the end of March.

A Friday release from the city said construction at the Dubuque Street exit, Exit 244, will begin the week of March 31.

The construction is a continuation of a project at the same location that ended in August of last year. This phase includes paving the northbound lanes on Dubuque Street and removing old entrance ramps.

If weather permits, traffic on Dubuque Street will shift to the southbound lanes with one lane of traffic in each direction between Linder Road and Foster Road on April 8.

The westbound exit ramp will also close at that time and traffic wishing to use it will be detoured to the 1st Avenue exit, Exit 242.

The construction is expected to be complete in early June.
