Have you noticed the work on I 80 happening through Iowa City yet?

Last year they moved the lanes over, now they are breaking this section up to repave it as a bike path with native prairie grasses on the north side, and a line of trees on the south to provide shade and work as a visual / noise block from the ever dwindling motorized traffic. The next phase will see the lanes in between the cycle path and the interstate torn out and train tracks will be put down for the highspeed rail system.
