Goodguys Des Moines Warning I-235 July 1,2,3

Just a small warning if anyone is going to Goodguys Des Moines July 1,2,3 be aware major construction I-235. If all possible try to avoid, get on mapquest or look your route over to get to fair grounds.
I don't know if I'm going depends on work maybe Sunday only anyone else going?

If you are coming from the west down I-80 there is another construction spot you might want to avoid. They are resurfacing Eastbound I-80, it is one lane and last Friday the Eastbound traffic going past Stuart Iowa was down to a crawl. People were exiting at the Stuart exit and asking the locals how to avoid the construction. It goes to the Redfield exit to the East and I am not sure how far West it goes but I have been to the Greenfield / Guthrie Center exit and it goes on West from there. Somebody told me, in the barber shop, that they are constructing to Adair. I would suggest that you exit at the Adair Iowa exit and head North through town, (old highway 6 I think they call it county road 925 now) this will take you down the white pole road. you will drive through Casey, Menlo, Stuart and Dexter. Take a right at the stop sign East of Dexter and back on I-80. This road was repaved about two years ago and is in great condition.

Just one more thing, when I go to the state fairgrounds I find it easier to take the new bypass around Des Moines and come down University from the East, it avoids all the freeway construction and the traffic is usually light even though it is farther.

I come in on I-80 from the West and take Southbound I-35. In about six miles I take exit 68 IA-5 South toward Airport/West Des Moines and follow it around to the University Avenue (highway 163) exit and go East on University.
