Front Street

From Nick Bergus, City of North Liberty

Hello, educators,

I wanted to give you a heads up that Front Street, between Cherry Street and Zeller Street, is expected to close on Wednesday, March 21, so crews can rebuild the roadway, sidewalks and utilities, which may impact some of your students and teachers. The closure is expected to last through construction season, so into the fall.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
