Sound Off: Road work designation
Why does the road work designated area around 15th and Iowa continue north all the way to Ninth Street? There’s absolutely no construction beyond 15th Street.
The overall work zone includes the construction of a center turn lane from 15th Street to Harvard Road, according to Megan Gilliland, city communications manager. Contractors are in the process of marking and surveying the area for the next phase of construction which includes the turn lane. The city is required to mark the entire work zone for a project for the duration of the project.
