The HIGHWAY: US 20

US 20 has played a prominent role in the economic development of Iowa since its construction in the early 1930's. A four-lane US 20 across Iowa figures prominently in the state's transportation strategy for the 21st Century.

The completion of US 20 through Hardin and Grundy Counties marks a major milestone in the development of the corridor. With the completion of this section, US 20 is now a four-lane highway from Dubuque to Fort Dodge.

An improved US 20 means improved traffic service levels, greater safety and improved access to north central Iowa. Adjacent communities will enjoy greater economic benefits and direct access to the Interstate Highway system. A more direct highway will mean a shorter traveling distance between Waterloo and Interstate 35, a reduction from 55 to 40 miles.
