Traffic Signal Timing Project & Iowa Avenue
This notice is to inform residents that the City of Indianola has retained Sternquist Construction to improve the synchronization of all the traffic signals and to reconstruct the pavement on Iowa Avenue, from 1st Street to Jefferson Way. Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 8, 2020. The construction contract for this project has a completion date of July 17, 2020. A portion of Iowa Avenue, from 1st Street to Jefferson Way, will be closed to traffic during this construction phase. Expect some traffic delays due to road closures during construction. Detour signs will be posted. The construction contractor will maintain temporary trash services and temporary mailboxes for property owners directly impacted by this project.
This project will improve the synchronization of all the traffic signals on Jefferson Way (US highway 65/69) and 2nd Ave (IA 92). This will help to reduce delays, improve traffic flow, and help the environment by reducing emissions from idling. As part of this project, which is being partially funded by Iowa DOT Iowa Clean Air Attainment Program, the pavement on Iowa Avenue from 1st Street to Jefferson Way, will also be replaced.
