170th Street will reopen on Friday, August 11. Work is substantially complete. The contractor will complete the reinstallation of the school beacons and school zone signs prior to school starting and work towards final restoration. City of Urbandale Public Works crews are installing permanent signage.
This project will reconstruct 170th Street from Meredith Drive to Waterford Road as well as approximately 1/4 mile of Meredith Drive, east of 170th Street. Both roads will be reconstructed as a four-lane roadway with left-turn lanes, including grading and storm sewer. 170th Street will include the City’s Complete Street policy, with a 5’ sidewalk and 10’ separate bike lane along the west side of the road. Meredith Drive will include a 10’ trail along the north side of the road. A Traffic Signal will be installed at 170th Street and Meredith Drive. This project has received a State Transportation Block Grant to assist with funding. 170th Street is known as "Alice's Road" in Clive and Waukee.
The Contractor for this project is C.J. Moyna & Sons, LLC, and Progressive Structures, LLC, joint venture. This project is a two-year project and is anticipated to be completed in late 2023.
