Location
The intersection of 8th St SE & 14th Ave SE and 8th St SE west to Falcon Drive SE.

A roundabout will be constructed at the intersection of 8th St SE and 8th Ave SE. A pedestrian tunnel will also be included with this project. These improvements are driven by the construction of the new Southeast Polk Middle School to be located just east of Sam Wise Youth Complex.
