The community of Coralville is located about 100 miles east of the Des Moines metropolitan area. Coralville lies just west of Iowa City, home of the University of Iowa. While Coralville has a population of about 12,000 people, the total urbanized area around Iowa City is well over 75,000 people. Both Iowa City and Coralville lie along Interstate 80 and at the southern end of Interstate 380. The University of Iowa campus, athletic facilities, University Hospital and Clinics, as well as the Veteran’s Administration Hospital are located very close to the Coralville study area, and are major traffic generators. As a result, traffic volumes along US Highway 6 can be very heavy at times, especially during University of Iowa athletic events. This report will give details of the study area and findings.
