I had a miserable experience on that stretch once. I was in Des Moines visiting the wifes family on Easter Sunday a couple years ago. For some reason I drove separate from her and the kids. On the way back my truck wouldn't shift above 3rd so I was stuck making the trip to Dubuque at a max speed of around 45 mph. Being Easter Sunday it was pretty much impossible to find someone to work on it. I assumed it was an electrical issue and just drove at a nice Sunday drive pace. I didn't want to brave I 80 at that speed so I took 30. During the 2 lane stretch I pulled over a couple times to let people pass, but toward the end there weren't a lot of good places to pull over and I just wanted it over so I just powered on. When I hit the four lane I counted a steady stream of 43 cars going around me. I think at least 39 honked and waved with a single finger (clearly Hawk fans).
I remember you - you were in a F-150 and consistent.

Not sure how on track they are, but July 30 said Thanksgiving for completion (per TR article). I've driven both stretches between Colo & Marshalltown and Tama & Marshalltown. Concrete has been poured on the majority. Tama side is now driving on some of the new part as they tore up the old road. It still only goes the same distance (unable to drive the curve through the majority of the town).
"I honestly believe we're doing it in a great, great way, and I hope our fans who are Iowa State fans go to work proudly, not just because of how we win and lose games or how many games we do win, but how we do it." - Bill Fennelly
