Thomas Beck Road Closure

Starting Monday, August 2nd, Thomas Beck Road, west of Bancroft Street, will be closed through mid-November to make repairs to the embankment below the EMC Overlook. The embankment experienced a landslide earlier this year below the EMC Overlook structure. The project will construct two tiered reinforced concrete retaining wall systems with rock anchors (tiebacks) and drainage improvements to stabilize the slope and protect the EMC Outlook footing and improvements at the top of the slope.

A detour will be posted using Fleur Drive, Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway, and SW 7th Street.

For questions regarding this project, please contact Joseph Eddy, City of Des Moines Project Engineer at 515-283-4034.
