HEARTLAND DRIVE & COMMERCE DRIVE I ROADWAY IMPROVEMENTS
Large retail stores, restaurants, and corporations make northwestern Coralville a hot spot for activity, creating the need for more capacty in the roadway network. The challenge for these environments is moving numerous vehicles as efficiently as possibly in a small area while keeping traffic flowing minimally impacting employee’s routes to work.
The developer needed a quick turnaround to complete the roadway project and hired McClure to use an accelerated design/build approach. McClure’s approach allowed the inital 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 was completed in 2014.
