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 https://iowadot.gov/systems_planning/Grant-Programs/Revitalize-Iowas-Sound-Economy-RISE-Program.

Davenport: Up to $942,074 from the city share of the RISE Fund was approved for a Local Development grant to assist in construction of approximately 1,170 feet of Zenith Avenue and reconstruction of approximately 1,765 feet of West 83rd Street located on the northwest side of town. This project is necessary to provide access to more than 50 acres for light industrial purposes. This project is anticipated to be completed by October 2023.
