In May 2002, the actual north end of IA 32 at JFK Road was blocked off for construction. The construction was from Asbury Road to here, very near IA 386. Jason wrote then, "This is construction of the Northwest Arterial extension (which is scheduled to open sometime this fall), looking southwestward from US 52/IA 3 in Sageville. A construction vehicle (far right) is parked at the actual point where it will meet 52. The break in the pavement is where the Arterial crosses JFK Road."

According to Jason, this "is a view from the same intersection looking northeastward. The road on the left is IA 386, and the new pavement ends right there. My prediction is that this will be a realigned 386 so it and 32 would end at the same intersection (and thus require only one stoplight)." He was right; the "south" end of 386 was moved here, creating a double end like 57/58 for about nine and a half months, until IA 386 was killed in the Second Great Decommissioning.

Pictures of the permanent north end shortly after its opening are with IA 386's south end here.

This end was blocked off for the aforementioned construction until May 2002. This was 32's original end at its commissioning in 1995. The extension to the "Future" end took place on September 13, 2002.

This is where 32 ended in the summer of 2002 while construction was going on.

Although that temporary "End" sign is behind us, signs for 32 remained on the closed part.
