OMG! We can't buy a break when it comes to traveling through Des Moines with ease. I don't know that Fleur Drive has ever NOT been under construction and now this! The City Of Des Moines will close the Northbound lanes of Martin Luther King, Junior Parkway from SW 15th to SW Second beginning next Monday, April 3rd. The City says the closure will most likely stay in place until December of 2024.
Des Moines' officials realize this is a massive inconvenience, but it's necessary to improve water quality. The project involves installing a new sanitary line. The Environmental Protection Agency is overseeing the project.
