North Liberty Road improvements get underway

Beginning Monday, March 6, work will begin on the second phase of improvements to North Liberty Road. The road will be reduced to one lane of traffic so crews can remove some trees along the remaining gravel portion of the road.

Beginning in April, the road is expected to be closed to through traffic so crews can regrade the road bed for improved sightlines, improve the shoulder and prepare for future trail and sidewalk additions, and realign the road’s curve for improved safety. Work is expected to last through the fall.

Traffic on E. Penn Street and North Liberty Road will be detoured to N. Juniper and Dubuque streets, but residents along the construction will have access to throughout the project.

Drivers are asked to use caution around the work site, allow extra travel time, and find alternative routes when possible. Details and updates on this and other North Liberty construction projects are available at
