142nd Street & Douglas Parkway Roundabout Improvements


The City of Urbandale will be reconstructing the approaches to the roundabout at Douglas Parkway and 142nd Street.  The reconstruction will provide for safer and more efficient roundabout operations.

On Monday, August 13, 2018, 142nd Street will close north of the roundabout.  Westbound traffic on Douglas Parkway will be reduced to one lane.  The following week, westbound Douglas Parkway will also be closed.  After the north half of the roundabout is complete, closures will begin for eastbound Douglas Parkway and 142nd Street south of the roundabout.  Detours will be posted.  Lanes will be re-opened as stages are completed.

It is anticipated the project will be entirely completed by the end of November. 

The City of Urbandale appreciates the public's understanding and patience as we complete this project.

Project Status Update

The North leg of the roundabout is closed.  Westbound traffic will be closed Wednesday, August 22nd.  See Project Status Map
