A construction project just west of the metro has hit a lot of road blocks.

Both Waukee and West Des Moines want to connect Alice’s road to I-80 to create an interchange. But for the project to move forward, Waukee needs the land between University Avenue and Ashworth Road.

The City says it is considering using eminent domain to get the land needed because not all the property owners in the area have agreed to sell.

The public meeting on the issue takes place at 5:30 p.m. Monday to discuss the plan.
