STREETSCAPE WORK: Beaver Avenue Plans


The city of Des Moines says it’ll break ground next week on a $1.9-million streetscape project.

The Beaver Avenue project runs from Beaver Crest to Fagen Drive. It will include storm sewer work, utility upgrades, and a redesign of traffic flow at the Beaver and Urbandale Avenue intersection.

Initial plans called for a roundabout at the intersection. But the idea was met with criticism and was eventually eliminated.
