NE Delaware Avenue to Close on Wednesday, March 6

Post Date:03/04/2019 12:05 p.m.

On Wednesday, March 6, 2019, at 8:30 a.m., NE Delaware Avenue will be closed to all traffic at the Fourmile Creek Bridge, just north of NE 18th Street in Ankeny. The street closure will remain in place for approximately 12 – 24 hours and the street will be opened back up to traffic once the work has been completed. 

This road closure is needed to facilitate the placement of the pedestrian bridge metal structure; this is part of the NE Delaware Avenue Pedestrian Bridge over Fourmile Creek and Bridge Approach Grading project. During the closure, through traffic should follow the signed detour when traveling through this area of the City. This street closure will be right at the NE Delaware Avenue Fourmile Creek Bridge and will not prevent property access to residents living in the area. Variable message boards will also be put up in this area along NE Delaware Avenue before and during the closure to help identify the area and inform the traveling public.
