Ankeny to Des Moines Route Closing Monday until Late Fall
POLK COUNTY, Iowa – A major project ten years in the making begins Monday morning near Saylor Township and Ankeny. Iowa DOT is demolishing the bridge off of 66th Avenue and Iowa 415, and transforming it into an “At Grade” intersection with traffic signals. Iowa DOT Transportation Engineer Associate Clayton Burke said many large semi-trucks have been running in to the bridge and getting stuck.
