New street construction projects to start Monday, June 10
Four new street construction projects will begin on Monday, June 10, in the City of Ankeny affecting West First Street, NW Weigel Drive, NW Eighth Street and NW Ninth Street. See details below for each project.
West First Street, eastbound lanes closing from SW Irvinedale Drive to SW Cedarwood Drive
The City of Ankeny will close the eastbound lanes on West First Street, from SW Irvinedale Drive to SW Cedarwood Drive, on Monday, June 10, in conjunction with the 2019 PCC Street Patching Program project. The closure is necessary for the removal and replacement of the eastbound street pavement. The closure will last approximately four to six weeks, weather permitting.
The designated detour route for eastbound West First Street traffic will be to utilize SW 3rd Street via SW Irvinedale Drive and SW Linden Street. See www.ankenyiowa.gov/construction for project location and detour route.
The street closure will also result in the following impacts:
- Casey’s General Store at West First Street and SW Irvinedale Drive – Full closure of the West First Street entrance; motorists should utilize SW Irvinedale Drive entrance
- Property owners along SW Meadowlark Court – entrance onto West First Street will be constructed one-half at a time to maintain access
- Property owners along SW Countrywood Lane – entrance onto West First Street will be fully closed; utilize SW Cedarwood Drive entrance
NW Weigel Drive and NW 8 th Street to Close on Monday, June 10

The road closure for NW Weigel Drive will have a signed detour to direct through traffic in the area. There will not be a signed detour for NW 8th Street.
These road closures are needed to facilitate construction of the 2019 Asphalt Street Resurfacing Program project.
