Reconstruction in the final four stages of the 2nd Street Streetscape project is scheduled to begin March 15, 2021, and be completed by October 1,2021.

Work also includes reconstruction of the intersections at Sycamore, Iowa, and Chestnut.

Each block of the project is assigned a stage and each side designated either “A” or “B” with work on one side of a block completed before the opposing side is started.

Residents or business owners who have questions about the project, the schedule of work, or would just like more information about the project can contact Bill Haag, Construction Project Manager, at (563) 299-0690.
