Agency Street Widening Project - West End

Starting Tuesday March 27th construction on Agency Road will resume at the Plaza West intersection.  Work will be completed in two phases.  As a result of construction, traffic moving in the north/southbound direction through the intersection will not be possible.  Reconstruction of this intersection is expected to take 4 to 6 weeks.  Detour signage will be posted directing North/South Bound traffic in the following manner:

  • For access north of Agency - Traffic  will be directed to the Western driveway near Dollar General
  • For access south of Agency – Traffic will be directed south on highway 61 to the market street intersection 
Agency Road Traffic Control Phase 4

Project Description

This project provides reconstruction of approximately 2,100 feet of Agency Road, from Roosevelt Avenue to West Burlington Avenue, utilizing funding through the Revitalize Iowa's Sound Economy (RISE) to cover 80% of the costs. This widening effort will improve traffic by including a center turn lane for the entrance to the GE plant and Lowe's. 

Also included in the project are Traffic Safety Improvements at the intersection of Agency Street and Frontage Road, to replace existing span wire hung traffic signals with pole mounted signals, and sidewalk will be installed on the north side of this Agency corridor.
