School begins on Monday, August 31, so there will be an increase in kids in and around our schools. Please be patient to ensure everyone gets to their destination safely.
In areas of construction, we urge you to be extra cautious. Due to the ramp closures at the I-35/80 Urban Loop, motorists will follow the marked detour route using 100th Street and the 100th Street interchange in Johnston. View the Iowa DOT detour map www.news.iowadot.gov/files/i80_35andia141_urban-loop.pdf.
Detour routes for Lawson Elementary, Wallace Elementary and Johnston Middle School can be found by visiting www.cityofjohnston.com/DocumentCenter/View/7878/MAP-2020-0821-School-Detours.
There will be an increased police presence in and around these areas to ensure the traffic flows smoothly. But please remember to be patient. The construction and detours are temporary but once complete, they will be better overall for our community.
