Road Construction 2019

​Beginning in late April 2019, several construction projects may impact traffic flow to and from the DMACC Ankeny Campus.

Project 1

Second Avenue (State Highway 415)

Road construction between I-80 and Oralabor Road (State Highway 160) in Ankeny will experience traffic reduced to single lane in each direction as it approaches the intersection with 66th Avenue (which runs east and west) during bridge removal and intersection reconstruction.

This Iowa DOT project is expected to begin April 22 and last through November 2019.
