North Stange reduced to two lanes for five weeks

by Anne Krapfl

A road pavement project on Stange Road in the vicinity of Veenker Memorial Golf Course will create lane closures for drivers and temporarily alter several CyRide routes. The work began today (Wednesday), and is scheduled to last about five weeks. It involves removing the top asphalt layer, repairing damaged sections of the concrete below it and applying a new asphalt layer.

The lane closures will take place north of 13th Street between the Squaw Creek bridge and Blankenburg Drive.

Ames road work

As scheduled, the northbound lanes will be closed for two weeks (May 27 through June 10), with one lane of traffic in each direction allowed on the other half of the road. A one-week hiatus is planned, with the repair work then moving to the southbound lanes for two weeks (beginning approximately June 22).

Bike paths on both sides of Stange Road will remain open during the project; CyRide bus stops will have temporary relocations.

The city of Ames will continue the pavement replacement:

  • North on Stange Road, from Blankenburg Drive to 24th Street
  • East on 24th Street, from Stange Road to the railroad spur line near the Northcrest Retirement Community

The city portion of the project is scheduled to begin late this week or early next week.


Work to repair wear to north Stange Road means one lane of traffic in each direction for the next five weeks.
