Lane Closure at Oralabor/Delaware intersection begins tonight, Sept. 7

Delays expected for Friday's commute, alternative route encouraged

Post Date:09/07/2017 8:43 AM

On Thursday, Sept. 7, at 7 p.m., the outside southbound through lane on SE Delaware Avenue will be closed at the SE Oralabor and SE Delaware intersection. This temporary closure will reduce southbound traffic to two left turn lanes and one through lane at this intersection. The lane closure is expected to last through early Saturday morning, Sept. 9, weather permitting. Traffic will be maintained in all directions, however motorists are encouraged to use an alternative route as delays are expected.

This is the first of several short-term lane closures that will carry over during daytime hours for the SE Oralabor Road and SE Delaware Avenue Roadway and Traffic Signal Improvements project during the next month. These closures are necessary to allow the new concrete sufficient time to cure before opening the pavement to traffic. Additional announcements will be made with each closure affecting daytime traffic.

Construction is being administered by the Iowa DOT.  Please see the Iowa DOT’s 511 system and the City of Ankeny’s Construction Map for updates.
