Follow Forevergreen Road

NORTH LIBERTY– Let not history repeat itself.
At least, that’s what officials from the cities of Coralville and North Liberty seem to be aiming for as they revisit a 2004-2006 road study.
The City of Coralville hired an engineering firm in 2004 to conduct a study of Forevergreen Road to generate possible alignments for its extension eastward to Dubuque Street. Coralville paid Earth Tech $59,000 to do the study, with a $15,000 contribution from the City of North Liberty.
Earth Tech presented its final report and a recommendation for the road extension in 2006.
