Please be advised that on Monday, October 15, 2012, Polk County Public Works, and its contractor, Des Moines Asphalt & Paving Co., will begin asphalt resurfacing of NE 22 Street from ½ mile south of NE Broadway Avenue, north to NE 66 Avenue (Corporate Woods Drive).
Major work on this project should take 4 to 5 days to complete, weather permitting. This work will require a one-lane closure throughout construction, and utilize a pilot car to escort traffic through the construction zone.
Due to the volume of traffic, this one-lane closure is expected to create significant traffic delays; therefore, all through traffic is encouraged to use alternate routes and allow extra travel time. Changeable message boards will be in-place for several days prior to this start date to warn commuters.
Access for local traffic will be maintained at all times except for when the construction operation is working directly in front of a residence or business. We anticipate access during these instances could be prevented for approximately 30 minutes while the rolling/compaction operation is completed. However, twenty-four hour emergency access will be maintained at all times.
If you have any questions concerning this project, please contact this office at (515) 286-3705 or via email at email@example.com .
