The purpose of the public hearing is to discuss the proposed improvements of the I-29/I-480/West Broadway Interchange area in Council Bluffs from just north of the Union Pacific Railroad crossing to just south of the 25th Street interchange, as well as to gather feedback from the public regarding the completed environmental documentation, alternative(s), and impacts for the proposed improvements. The area also includes the I-29 and I-480 system interchange. A meeting to discuss specific right-of-way acquisition will be held later this year.

The proposed project will impact two publicly owned recreational properties. Dodge Riverside Golf Course located at 421 Harrah’s Boulevard and Westwood Park, located at 1200 South 35th Street. These facilities are owned and operated by the City of Council Bluffs.
Dodge Riverside Golf Course and Westwood Park have been determined to be a Section 4(f) resource and the proposed project is expected to have a deminimis impact to both properties. De minimis impacts are defined as those that, after consideration of any measures to minimize harm (such as avoidance, minimization, mitigation, or enhancement), do not adversely affect the activities, features and attributes that qualify it for Section (f) protection. The use of property from Dodge Riverside Golf Club and Westwood Park will, for transportation purposes, include all measures to minimize harm to the affected activities, features, or attributes that qualify them for Section 4(f) protection. Section 4(f) of the U.S. Department of Transportation Act of 1966 was enacted as a means of protecting publicly owned parks, recreation areas, and wildlife/waterfowl refuges, as well as historic sites of local, state, or national significance from conversion to transportation uses. With this notice, the public is invited to review and comment on the impacts this project will have on the protected activities, features, and attributes of the facilities.
The public hearing will be conducted utilizing a combined open forum and formal format. Iowa DOT staff will be present to discuss the project informally between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. and following the formal presentation until 7:00 p.m.
A formal presentation will begin at 6:00 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session. We ask that each speaker limit his/her statement to three minutes or less. Oral and written statements will be accepted during both the open forum and the formal sessions. Interested individuals are encouraged to attend to express their views and ask questions about the proposed improvement.
