The City of Waukee is continually working on public capital improvement projects which address current needs, sustain existing infrastructure and ensure that the City’s services and amenities are ready for continued growth of the Waukee community. Get the latest information about the progress being made on Waukee’s capital improvement projects! 

Note: All project plans are weather permitting. 

Waukee Public Library Stormwater Improvements Project

Construction of the new parking lot in front of the library continues with the rest of the paving anticipated to be completed soon. Crews will then work to install permeable pavers in parking stalls and bioswales around the property. These features will allow for stormwater to be filtered and managed more effectively. Crews hope to finish out the project ahead of schedule yet this fall.

NW 10th Street/NW Sunrise Drive Improvements

To date, crews have completed the paving of NW Sunrise Drive and the roundabout at the intersection of NW Sunrise Drive and NW 6th Street. The pedestrian tunnel under NW 10th Street has also been installed. Crews are planning to begin paving on NW 10th Street this week.

ADA Sidewalk Improvements

Work on the ADA sidewalk improvements is substantially complete. The goal of this project is to ensure that the City has accessible paths of travel in the public right-of-way for people with disabilities. Crews are working to finish surface restoration and seeding. New pavement markings will also be installed in the coming weeks.

Alice Nizzi and Glynn Village Parks

Crews are still working toward the installation of playground equipment. Both parks are anticipated to be completed this fall, weather permitting. Learn more about Alice Nizzi Park and Glynn Village Park.

Alice’s Road Landscape Enhancements

Over the past weeks crews have been working to complete landscaping in the medians on Alice’s Road. Crews are scheduled to begin pouring footings for new monument signs this week. The lane closure of the inside northbound lane of Alice’s Road along the median is anticipated to last until the end of the project in late September.
