101921 Wesst Hlll 02 - West 8th from Cllimer (JPG)

Update OCTOBER 19, 2021

West 8th Street has reopened to local traffic from Broadway to Climer but remains closed from Climer to Locus as Phase 5 of the West Hill Area Sanitary and Storm Sewer Separation Project (WHSSP) continues.


Sewer separation work from 891 West 8th Street up to Lucas Street continues with the contractor still anticipating having West 8th repaved and open to traffic before the winter shutdown.


Underground work through the property at 891 West 8th Street is also ongoing but that work has been hampered by high groundwater levels.


Hagerty Earthworks, Inc., was awarded the $6.03 million contract for Phase V of the WHSSP during the April 1 City Council meeting. This phase includes replacing sewers on West 8th Street from Broadway to Lucas, on Climer Street from West 8th Street to Lucas, Logan Street from Lucas to Climer, Lucas Street from 912 Lucas to Fletcher Avenue, and through the ravine between Climer and Lucas.

Street intersection geometry changes planned

Phase 5 of the West Hill Sanitary and Storm Sewer Separation Project will be replacing the remainder of 8th Street along with a portion of Lucas Street during the 2021-2023 construction seasons. During this time, the City of Muscatine plans to correct some street intersection geometry. Below are renderings of some of the proposed changes that will occur during Phase 5.
