The road may be closed but we are still open! May 3rd, 2021 marks the beginning of the Council Street road construction. Here is everything you want to know about the Council Street road construction.
How to Access the McGrath Dealerships
Road closures can be frustrating and inconvenient. To help you prepare and navigate this closure, we created a map illustrating how you can easily access the businesses on 51st Street during this closure. McGrath Buick GMC Cadillac, McGrath Chevyland, McGrath Fleet and Commercial and Iowa Used Car Supercenter will remain open during normal operating hours throughout the duration of the road construction.
How Long will Council Street be Closed?
The construction project is projected to take three months total but the intersection of 51st Street and Park Place will be closed for approximately 4 weeks. The intersection will be closed to through traffic, all traffic will be detoured to C Ave during the closure.
Tips to Prepare for the Council Street Closure:
Give Yourself Extra Time for the Commute
On a normal day, Council Street is busy with traffic during the morning and evening commute. With the closure of Council Street, traffic will be detoured to other busy roads like C Ave and Center Point Rd. Anticipate an increase in commuting time by leaving earlier for your morning commute or choose an alternative route.
Access 51st Street from the Center Point Road Entrance
All the businesses will remain open throughout the duration of the road construction. To access 51st Street, use the Center Point Road entrance across from Sylvia Ave.
