North Liberty to Bid Out Highway 965 Work
from the Corridor Business Journal
The city of North Liberty expects to begin the bidding process for one part of its Highway 965 improvement project next month.
On Dec. 15, the city will begin accepting bids to add traffic signals at Cherry Street and Highway 965.
In February, the city expects to begin accepting bids for $3.3 million in improvement work to several intersections along Highway 965 on the southern edge of town, including Golfview Drive/Fairview Lane, Ashley Court, Hawkeye Drive and Lions Drive.
“We have a long way to go but we’re excited to begin,” said Ryan Heiar, North Liberty’s city administrator.
The multi-phased project is expected to cost $23 million and take 15 years to complete. It will add a turning lane, improve intersections and add traffic signals.
The city has also secured four of the six parcels necessary to build a new city hall, which officials hope to complete within three years.
