RISE grant application approved
The RISE program was established to promote economic development in Iowa through construction or improvement of roads and streets. Iowa cities and counties are eligible for funding in the form of a grant, loan, or combination thereof. Projects must involve construction or improvement of a public roadway. There are two RISE project types: 1) Immediate Opportunity, and 2) Local Development. More information is available at www.iowadot.gov/systems_planning/rise.htm.

Ankeny: Up to $651,446 from the city share of the RISE Fund was approved for a Local Development grant to assist in relocation and reconstruction of approximately 1,165 feet of Southeast Hulsizer Drive and a traffic signal at the new intersection of Southeast Hulsizer Drive and Oralabor Road located on the east side of town. This project is necessary to provide improved access to more than 12 acres for light industrial, warehousing­, and manufacturing purposes. This project is anticipated to be completed by May 2019.
