UPDATE JUNE 17, 2021

061621 Grandview Avenue Force Main (JPG)

The intersection of Grandview Avenue and Oregon/Warren streets will be closed for one week (June 21-25) for the underground installation of a section of a new DNR/EPA mandated redundant force main. The length of the closure is dependent on the weather.

 

Oregon will be closed to through traffic just north of the entrance to Grain Processing Corporation between Schley and Dewey avenues with a full closure of Oregon on the south side of the Canadian Pacific crossing. Access to businesses in that stretch of Oregon will be maintained.

 

Grandview Avenue is currently restricted to northbound traffic only from Musser to Pearl. However, a full closure of Grandview will be implemented just north of the White Street intersection. Northbound traffic will be detoured onto White Street to Division Street, and to Evans Street. Traffic will be able to return to Grandview by using Bleeker Street or continue on Evans to Main Street to continue north on Hershey and Mississippi Drive.

 

Access to all businesses on Grandview Avenue will be maintained during the intersection closure.

 

The dual use redundant force main will eventually run from Musser Park through the Grandview intersection and ending at the Muscatine Pollution Control Plant (Water and Resource Recovery Facility). The work complies with a DNR/EPA mandate to complete the installation of the dual use redundant force main by 2026 following emergency repairs to the existing force main following a collapse of a portion of the line in November 2017.

 

MUSCABUS BLUE ROUTE – With the intersection at Warren and Oregon closed June 21-25, those who need picked up by MuscaBus south of Oregon and Warren are asked to call the Transit office at 563-263-8152 to request a ride.


Heuer Construction, Inc., was awarded the $7.74 million contract for the two-year Grandview Avenue Reconstruction Project that will remove and replace the pavement from Main Street to approximately 200 yards past Houser Street while adding sidewalks and additional streetscaping to provide a much more inviting corridor for residents and visitors.

GREENING AMERICA’S COMMUNITIES (PDF) - Making the Grandview Avenue Corridor Green and Complete

The city of Muscatine, Iowa, requested assistance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through its Greening America’s Communities Program to create a cohesive vision for Grandview Avenue, the city’s southern gateway. The city wants to transform this street and the surrounding corridor, rarely explored on foot, into a model for how to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety and comfort; and use green infrastructure strategies such as swales, stormwater planters and permeable paving to manage stormwater runoff. As a part of this project, city staff members hope to make the Grandview Avenue corridor a more inviting entrance to the community and a more attractive neighborhood for economic development all while addressing stormwater and localized flooding concerns.
