The City of Perry and the Iowa Department of Transportation have initiated planning for the Highway 144/1st Avenue conversion project. This project includes Highway 144/1st Avenue from Highway 141 to the northern city limit. This project proposes to change the existing 4-lane section to a 3-lane section to match the section around Willis Avenue.

The purpose of this project is to address aging pavement and the high crash rate on this corridor.
