Warrior Lane Improvements
Aug. 19 Update:
The roundabout intersection is now open to traffic. Northview Drive is no longer a through street. With these improvements in place, pedestrians will cross only one lane of traffic at a time before reaching a landing zone, meaning they only need to watch for vehicles coming from one direction at a time. As drivers get used to this intersection, please slow down when approaching, and yield to vehicles and pedestrians. Landscaping and other median work continues, so please yield to construction crews as well. Learn more about navigating roundabout intersections.
Aug. 10 Update: The roundabout intersection is expected to open by Aug 20, 2021. Read up on "Roundabouts in Iowa" on the Iowa Department of Transportation's website, featuring general information, FAQs and video.
June 1 Update: Ashworth Drive, just east and west of Warrior Lane, is now closed. This shuts 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 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.
