The Ankeny Boulevard and First Street Intersection Improvements Project includes traffic safety and mobility improvements including:

•            modified east and west approaches to transition the westbound through lanes

•            a single westbound left turn lane and a dedicated westbound right turn lane

•            a new traffic signal, pedestrian ramps and landscaping at the four quadrants of the intersection

The street and signal improvements were completed in 2018. The sidewalk improvements are expected to be completed in May and the landscaping improvements will be completed by fall 2019.
