Agency Street Widening Project - West End

Starting the week of March 26th construction on Agency Road will resume at the West Burlington Ave and Plaza West Intersections.  Work in the intersections will be completed in two phases, and impact traffic moving northbound and southbound through the intersections.  The reconstruction process is expected to last 2 months.

Detour signage will be posted directing northbound and southbound traffic around the intersections per the following.  Traffic traveling Northbound and Southbound on West Burlington through the West Burlington/Agency intersection, will be detoured to Broadway Avenue.  Traffic traveling Northbound and Southbound through the Plaza West/Agency intersection, will be detoured to either the Western Dollar General entrance (for access to the businesses north of Agency), or Market Street for entrances south of Agency street. 

Agency Detour - West Burlington Ave

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.
