Large retail stores, restaurants and corporations make northwestern Coralville a hot spot for activity creating the need for more capacity in the roadway network. The challenge for these environments is moving numerous vehicles as efficiently as possible in a small area while keeping traffic flowing and minimally impacting employee’s routes to work.

MEC Results

  • The developer needed an quick turnaround to complete the roadway project and hired MEC to use an accelerated design/build approach.
  • The approach allowed the initial phases of construction to begin before the entire project was fully designed.
  • The first four phases were completed in 2013 with the last phase, involving a second roundabout at Commerce Drive, which completed in 2014.
