The proposed project is the final phase of the Southeast Connector (SEC) which will start at East Martin Luther King Boulevard and travel east to U.S. Highway 65. The project will cross Four Mile Creek and associated wetlands in Section 8, Township 78 North, Range 23 West, Polk County, Iowa.

The City of Des Moines proposes to construct the final segment of the Southeast Connector which will begin from SE 30th Street east to U.S. Highway 65 for a distance of approximately 2miles. The Southeast Connector will match the existing segments and will be a two-lane road with grading complete for an eventual 4-lane buildout. Sections of SE 30th, SE 36th, SE 43rd and Vandalia Road will be improved as part of the overall project.
