12/18/20 Road Project Update

2020 road projects

Check out our road construction FAQ for common questions about the road construction projects in Windsor Heights.

69th Street

Stage 2: For the week of December 21st, the Contractor will be cleaning up the site and preparing for winter conditions.  Grading and backfilling may occur as weather allows.  Final grading will not occur until the spring along with seeding.  All work is weather dependent.  Please remember to place garbage and recycling out at the end of your driveway by 5 PM Thursday for the Contractor to pick up.  Pickup times are different for each item, so they may not be returned at the same time.

Stage 3 & 4:  For the week of December 21st, the Contractor will be pouring driveways with rock in them.  This work is weather dependent.

Stages 3 and 4 will not be completed until the spring of 2021. On 12/7, the City council approved a change order to allow for 72 working days for stages 3 and 4 to be completed on this project in the spring of 2021. Affected residents will be given as much notice as we can before work begins again in the spring. 

If you experience problems or have any questions or concerns specific to your water, please contact the DMWW Project Manager, Carla Schumacher, at 515-323-6227 (office) or cschumacher@dmww.com.

University Avenue Project

Work is complete for the winter and will resume in the spring.  Miscellaneous work will continue between 70th Street and 73rd Street as weather allows throughout the winter.  Work is weather dependent.  All businesses are open.  For everyone’s safety, monitor traffic control changes, and no texting while driving.  Watch for construction workers and the added construction truck traffic.  Do NOT follow trucks into the work zone.
