86th Street Preservation Project


This project would provide for the patching and overlay of 86th Street from Aurora Avenue to the North Corporate Limits.  There will be periods of noise and lane closures.

The City of Urbandale appreciates your cooperation as we improve the condition and driving surface of this major route.

Project Status

The Contractor is scheduled to begin patching and sidewalk repairs on Monday, April 23rd.  This portion of the project will involve lane closures on 86th Street.  Work will begin on the inside lanes between Aurora Avenue and Meredith Drive.  At least one lane of traffic will remain open in each direction on 86th Street during this phase.

Future phases of the project will require full closures of 86th Street for patching and overlay.  Advanced notice will be posted for closures.  Closures will primarily be done at night and/or on weekends to limit impact to residents and businesses.  Detours will be posted.

Access and Work Zones

Notice to Residents and Businesses

Access will be provided for residences and businesses along the road during road closures.  Every effort will be made to minimize the impact, but there will be some inconvenience.  The goal is to work both safely and quickly.  Please be patient and work with the contractors.

As always, please use caution when driving through a construction zone.  Tack oil will be placed just before the asphalt paving.  Local residents should avoid driving on the tack oil.  If crossing the tack oil is unavoidable for access, please drive slowly.
