Alice's Road Widening

When Grand Prairie Parkway was completed in December 2015, it opened a new gateway to Waukee from the south and gave commuters a more direct connection to the Interstate. Phase 4 to widen Alice’s Road north of University Avenue to SE Olson Drive was completed in December 2017. This improvement project also featured the construction of a Heart of the Warrior Trail underpass, a trail addition along the west side of Alice's Road and a sidewalk addition along the east side.

Phase 5 of the Alice’s Road widening project is now complete. The once two-lane, 1.25-mile stretch of Alice’s Road between SE University Avenue and NE Horizon Drive in Waukee is now a six-lane road with four additional signalized intersections, a 10-foot wide trail and sidewalks.
