The Highway 65 reconstruction project between 97th Avenue and 119th Avenue is now fully funded and moving forward. The project has now entered the final design phase. Design work will continue into 2024. The design will include overpasses that will lift Highway 65 over the local cross streets at 99th Avenue, 105th Avenue, 109th Avenue, and 117th Avenue. When completed there will be no stoplights on Highway 65 between 93rd Avenue/Cloverleaf Parkway and Bunker Lake Boulevard.
As design work continues right-of-way acquisition along the corridor will begin. Construction on the project is expected to begin in 2025 or 2026 and will take approximately three years to complete.
This fall there will be opportunities for public input on the final design. Both in-person and online feedback opportunities will be offered to the community.
