Intersection Safety Improvements | Division & Northwest Blvd

Intersection improvements are complete!

Southeast bound Northwest Blvd will be closed to through traffic at Pine St beginning Thursday, April 15. Westbound Northwest Blvd will remain open. Eastbound access to the golf course will be available. However, citizens are encouraged to enter off of westbound Northwest Blvd as a safer, more efficient option.

The closure is necessary for intersection improvements at Division and Northwest Blvd. Eastbound travel should resume mid-May.

Intersection safety improvements are set to begin at Division and Northwest Boulevard on Monday, April 5.  Initially, the project will reduce Division St to one lane in each direction through the intersection. In a few weeks, travel on Northwest Blvd will be limited through the intersection. The traffic signal will be set to flashing for the duration of the project. Please be reminded to treat the intersection as a four-way stop when traveling through the area.

The project will widen the intersection, improve the shoulder, install designated left-turn lanes, and upgrade the location's traffic signal.  All work is estimated to be complete by late June 2021.

Of interest, 80% of the project was funded through a grant from the Iowa DOT Traffic Safety Improvement Program.
