170th Street Reconstruction with Meredith Drive
This project will reconstruct 170th Street from Meredith Drive to Waterford Road as well as approximately 1/4 mile of Meredith Drive, east of 170th Street. Both roads will be reconstructed as a four-lane roadway with left-turn lanes, including grading and storm sewer. 170th Street will include the City’s Complete Street policy, with a 5’ sidewalk and 10’ separate bike lane along the west side of the road. Meredith Drive will include a 10’ trail along the north side of the road. A Traffic Signal will be installed at 170th Street and Meredith Drive. This project has received a State Transportation Block Grant to assist with funding. 170th Street is known as "Alice's Road" in Clive and Waukee.
The Contractor for this project is C.J. Moyna & Sons, LLC, and Progressive Structures, LLC, joint venture. This project is a two-year project and is anticipated to be completed in late 2023.
Construction will resume 3/29/2023 with closure of 170th Street from Plum Drive to north of Waterford Road. Also, Meredith Drive west of 170th Street is expected to close 4/3/2023. Detours will be posted. See additional details below.
Access and Work Zones:
This project will be completed in stages. Please follow posted signs and detours for routing around construction. Please check back here for updates on closures as work progresses.
Maps will be posted to this webpage with additional information. The schedule is subject to change based on weather, conditions in the field, and contractor coordination. Check back to this page for project updates. As always, please use caution in the construction zone and obey all traffic control, for your safety and the safety of others. We appreciate your patience, thank you for your cooperation.
Please see the "Staging Map Below" for project stages. This is a two-year project. The goal for Year 1 was to get Stages 1A, 1B, and 1C completed; due to weather and utility delays, this may be adjusted. Year 2 will start with Stage 2, with Stage 3 taking place after school is out for the summer in 2023.
Project Status Update, 03/22/2023:
On Wednesday, March 29th, the Contractor will close 170th Street from Plum Drive to north of Waterford Road to begin construction of Stages 2A and 2B. Plum Drive will remain open for school access. Waterford Road will be closed at the intersection with 170th Street. The outside lanes of 170th Street will be closed to allow sidewalk, trail, fence, and driveway installation in previous stages.
On Monday, April 3rd, Meredith Drive will be closed west of 170th Street; the intersection will remain open. The outside lanes of Meredith Drive east of 170th Street will be closed to allow sidewalk, trail, bio-retention cells, and final grading to be completed.
