Warrior Lane Project Shuts Down Ashworth Drive Intersection

warrior lane stage 1 web

June 1st Update: 
Ashworth Drive, just east and west of Warrior Lane is now closed. This will shut down the five-way intersection located at Warrior Lane and Ashworth Drive for the remainder of the summer, to allow construction crews to build the new four-leg roundabout intersection. The Heart of the Warrior Trail will not be impacted immediately, however, there may be temporary closures to allow utility crossings. The portion of the Heart of the Warrior Trail between Windfield Park and SE Olson Drive may be used as a temporary route for emergency services during the closure of the five-way intersection. If trail users see emergency vehicles on the trail, they should clear the trail to give space for the vehicles to safely pass. Waukee Middle School's north entrance on Warrior Lane will be closed. See staging and detour maps.

Stage 1 roadway improvements began on S. Warrior Lane on Monday, March 15. S. Warrior Lane is now closed from Ashworth Drive south to the north driveway of Waukee Middle School. Northview Drive and Bel Aire Drive will both be closed to through traffic at S. Warrior Lane. See Stage 1 site map

Sidewalks on the east side of Warrior Lane will remain open for the remainder of the 2021 spring Waukee Community School District semester. All Waukee Middle School driveways will remain open during that time period as well. Pedestrian access to S. Warrior Lane from the west will be made available at the Bel Aire Drive crossing.

Detour signs will be posted during construction. Drivers wishing to access Immanuel Lutheran Church, Waukee Middle School, the Waukee Public Library and other destinations located south of the five-way intersection will need to utilize Ashworth Road, University Avenue and/or S. Warrior Lane. Residents located in the adjacent neighborhood to the west of the five-way stop intersection will need to take Northview Drive west to 2nd Street and then exit onto Ashworth Road. See Stage 1 detour map

It is necessary to close a portion of S. Warrior Lane during the spring school semester in order to complete the full Warrior Lane Improvements project prior to the start of the 2021-2022 school year in August 2021. Thank you for your patience as the City of Waukee works to make traffic more efficient and to improve safety.
