THE PROJECT

The West Hill Area Sanitary and Storm Sewer Project Phase 4C is anticipated to begin in early February 2020 with work on Iowa Avenue between 8th and 9th Streets and on 9th Street from Iowa to Chestnut. The actual schedule of the work and work areas has not been completed as yet and may be subject to change. All work is weather dependent. Phase 4C includes replacement of water main along with storm and sewer mains. The green area (map below) is the area that will be impacted by work in Phase 4C. 

A detour route has been established and will be implemented once work progresses to 8th Street. The detour is the same as the detour for Phase 4B (on 7th Street from Cedar to Broadway to provide the best path for traffic flow and return to West 8th Street at a traffic signal-controlled intersection). Heavy truck traffic will be re-routed away from the residential area. In order to provide a detour route through this neighborhood that is safer for traffic and parked vehicles, parking will again be limited to one side only on 7th Street. No Parking signs will be placed on the river side (even number side) to prohibit parking prior to the implementation of the detour later this summer.
