Forevergreen Road Extension (Future Project)

Forevergreen Road Extension:
North Liberty Road to 12th Avenue (Future Project)
The Cities of North Liberty and Coralville are working in partnership to secure funding for the final 1.3 miles of Forevergreen Road that will complete a 7.3 mile arterial street corridor between the Dubuque Street interchange on Interstate 80 and the Forevergreen Road interchange on Interstate 380.  

The future street corridor will provide an important link to major employers and destinations throughout the metropolitan area, while also providing easier access to and from Interstate 80 and Interstate 380 for all travelers.

Funding
The project is included in the Iowa City Urbanized Area Arterial Street Plan and the MPOJC Federally Funded Transportation Infrastructure Needs List. The Cities of North Liberty and Coralville have the project corridor in their Community Plans. The estimated cost of the project is approximately $10,000,000. This project is not yet funded.

Timeline
To be determined. Timeline is based on securing project funds.
