Highway 965 funding gets another lift

NORTH LIBERTY– The City of North Liberty keeps chipping away at street improvements projects, and little by little, funding assistance keeps the wheels of progress turning.
At its May 29 meeting, the Urbanized Area Policy Board of the Metropolitan Planning Organization of Johnson County (MPOJC) voted to funnel another $1,948,000 to North Liberty for Highway 965. The portion of roadway approved for this round of funding, which stretches from Penn Street to Zeller Street, is considered the third of a planned seven-phase, comprehensive plan to widen and improve the thoroughfare.
