Construction of NIACC Charles City Career Academy Disrupts Traffic

Construction of the new Career Academy at the NIACC Center in Charles City is disrupting traffic.

Crews from project contractor, Woodruff Construction of Waterloo, began work April 14th to add the career academy onto the south side of the existing Charles City NIACC Center, just east of Hy-Vee. 

This week, that construction has taken to the streets, so to speak. Work on the NIACC addition has caused the closure of Clark Street from the Highway 18/Brantingham Street intersection west to Chapel Lane. The closure is expected to remain in place until Monday, June 5th.

In addition to Charles City, the Career Academy partnership also includes the Clarksville, Nashua-Plainfield, North Butler, Osage, Riceville and Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock school districts. 

The construction timeline targets completion of the career academy by the end of next March, although courses in the areas of health, information technology, construction trades and advanced manufacturing won’t be available to area high school students until August of 2024.
