Construction Underway in Bondurant

Throughout the summer, you will see a lot of construction going on around Bondurant.

  • Adopted at the September 5th, 2017 meeting, the City Council agreed to purchase a piece of property that is adjacent to (on the west side of) the Bondurant Recreational Sports Complex and north of Lake Petocka. The land was identified in the city’s comprehensive plan and in the Park, Trail and Greenway Master Plan as additional recreational land. City staff has met with representatives from the Bondurant Little League, the Bondurant Soccer Club, and the Bondurant School District to discuss how to layout the approximate 24 acres in a way that maximizes recreational space and addresses some of the growing demand for sports fields. The soccer fields will be the fields first in use as the City currently has the resources for grading and seeding, but not full ballfield development. 
  • 113 Main St SE was demolished and will be replaced with additional downtown parking.
  • 1455 Grant St S Casey's General Store is going to be renovating. 
  • Morris Elementary's addition is underway.
  • Pleasant Grove detention facility has been constructed.
  • The bridge on 15th Street NW was damaged during the flood that occurred June 30/July 1st. The area had received an extreme amount of rainfall in the storms that had passed through, which caused this site to become inundated with flood water. The City engaged an engineer to perform a special flood damage assessment and the bridge was barricaded off to eliminate any traffic passing over the bridge. The bridge on 15th Street NW was damaged during the flood that occurred June 30/July 1st. The area had received an extreme amount of rainfall in the storms that had passed through, which caused this site to become inundated with flood water. The City engaged an engineer to perform a special flood damage assessment and the bridge was barricaded off to eliminate any traffic passing over the bridge. The City Council researched and discussed the cost of undertaking bridge repairs. Due to the limited remaining life of this bridge and the difficulty in being able to properly fix it, and the cost to repair it, the decision was made to forego repairing the bridge and move forward with demolition of the structure and construction of a new, appropriately-sized structure, in a slightly different location. (The current bridge’s location outlets vehicles onto a curve, which does not meet current safety standards.) The process to design, bid, and construct the necessary bridge and street improvements will take between 18 and 24 months. Design is underway and the old bridge will be demolished in Spring of 2019.

  • MidCountry Machinery is planning to build in 2019 in Bondurant.
  • RMS is also planning to build in 2019.
  • Design for the Highway 65 Underpass in underway. The City has secured the majority of funding for the project and is actively pursuing the remainder of the funds through grants.
  • Stormwater Infrastructure Upgrade: The NW Storm Sewer Project is nearing final design and expected to be constructed in the fall of 2019.
  • Bondurant Business Park is under construction.
  • Bondurant Industrial Park is under construction.
