More roundabouts coming to North Liberty

$4 million project begins in spring

NORTH LIBERTY– A new elementary school in North Liberty means ambitious roadway improvements starting this spring.

With the opening of Christine Grant Elementary School in August, two roundabouts are planned for simultaneous construction on North Front Street, just before classes begin. Anticipated to start as soon as weather cooperates, the estimated $4.1 million project also includes water main and sanitary sewer replacement, improved intersection lighting and sight distance improvements on West Penn Street.
