Westbound West First Street between Ankeny Boulevard and Logan Street to Close Overnight on Wednesday, July 11
Westbound West First Street, between Ankeny Boulevard and Logan Street, will be closed to traffic from 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 11, until 6 a.m. Thursday, July 12, weather permitting. This closure is necessary to pave the inside lane of West First Street in front of the BP/ AMOCO gas station to accommodate the Ankeny Boulevard and First Street Intersection Improvements project. The posted detour route for the overnight closure will reroute westbound traffic on North Ankeny Boulevard, NW 5th Street, and NW School Street.
The Ankeny Boulevard and First Street Intersection Improvements project will provide traffic safety and mobility improvements including:
- a single westbound left turn lane and a dedicated westbound right turn lane
- a new traffic signal
- new landscaping and pedestrian ramps
