News Carousel 2

The City of Council Bluffs Public Works Department is pleased to announce a new interactive map designed to inform residents of local road construction and road closures. The road closures map is a geographic information system (GIS) map that identifies the exact locations of road closures in Council Bluffs. Closures listed on the map include full road closures, partial road closures, lane restrictions, and plans for future closures.

 The interactive road closures map is posted at councilbluffs-ia.gov/publicworks under the “Road Closures” tab.

 “This is a great way to keep the residents of Council Bluffs up-to-date with what the repair crews are working to improve around the City,” said Jeremy Noel, Council Bluffs Public Works Operations Manager. “This GIS map is another example of the transparency within your Public Works Department.”

The interactive map includes information on Council Bluffs Public Works Street and Sewer Division projects and City Capital Improvement Projects. Based on available data, the map may also include projects from the Iowa Department of Transportation or the utility companies that impact City streets. 

In addition to the road closure location, the map provides specific project details, including the project name, summary of work, estimated duration, and the project contact person or organization. Future projects will be updated as details become available.  

“This online resource can assist the traveling public with information related to street construction and traffic impacts,” said Matt Cox, Council Bluffs Public Works Director. “The proactive approach provides citizens with important real-time information that can be easily accessed, and is available any time of the day/ night.” 

The Public Works Department provides an infrastructure of services in engineering, right-of-way, water pollution control, streets, sewers, traffic, facilities maintenance, central stores, solid waste, and recycling. Residents wishing to report a concern such as a pothole or to request alley maintenance or a street sweeper can do so online at www.councilbluffs-ia.gov under “Report a Concern.” 

“Our Public Works Department is dedicated to providing high-quality public services to the residents of Council Bluffs,” said Matt Walsh, Council Bluffs Mayor. “The implementation of the new road closure map demonstrates the Department’s proactive approach to customer service.”
