Ashworth & Ute

Ashworth Road is now open east of Ute Avenue, making Ashworth available to traffic all the way through Waukee. The entire project is anticipated to wrap by the end of the year, weather permitting. 

Shifts, changes and closures:

  • If you plan to travel on Ute near Ashworth today or tomorrow, allow extra time or select an alternate route, if possible. A crew is out doing emergency repairs on fiber cables next to the roadway, and construction crews are paving today, so traffic will likely be congested around this intersection. If you must travel in this area, please use extra caution to help keep workers safe.
  • Ute Avenue at Ashworth will have lane closures Thursday, 12/1 from 9-2 as crews pave the southbound lanes. Flaggers will guide traffic through the area. Please slow down and use extra caution.
  • Ashworth open to traffic. Continue to use caution when driving in this area as work continues along Ashworth Road to finish the project.
  • Lanes on Ute Avenue through the Ute Avenue/Ashworth Road intersection are under construction. Follow the cones and signs to navigate the intersection. Weather permitting, the new lanes are expected to open by the end of the year.
  • Silverleaf Lane is closed at Ute Avenue (potentially until project completion in December). To access the Willow Pines neighborhood from Ute Avenue, use Jackpine Drive.
