JOHNSON COUNTY (KWWL) -

The Iowa Department of Transportation says it's considering adding another exit off Interstate 380.

The DOT is looking at putting an interchange at Forevergreen Rd. in Johnson County. That's in the middle of a four-mile stretch with no exits, between I-80 and North Liberty.

The DOT says the growth in the area would make it a good spot for a new exit.

The plan still needs approval from the Federal Highway Administration but the DOT is hoping to start construction in a few years. They say the exit could help with traffic concerns during the re-construction of the 380/80 interchange.
