MUSCATINE, Iowa – The 1600 block of Cedar Street will be reduced to one lane of traffic on Monday (April 25) as full depth patching begins. Heuer Construction, Inc., will begin removal, repairs, and replacement in the northbound lane from the first entrance to the Trinity Muscatine lower parking lot to the Parham Street intersection.
Repair work will be completed in sections with one driveway closed at a time. Drivers are urged to use caution when travelling through construction zones, obey traffic control devices, and find alternate routes if possible.
Two emergency repairs have been accomplished as part of the 2022 Full Depth Patching Project as repairs have completed on Hershey and Liberty. The current contract also calls for work on Isett Avenue (Bidwell Road to the Heinz pedestrian entrance), Houser Street (Fulliam Avenue to Dawson Street), Stewart Road (Oregon Avenue to Wallace Street), Robin Road (Sunrise Circle east to end of the concrete), Frontage Road (Cleveland Street to Ford Avenue), and Devitt Avenue (Ridgewood Avenue to Pinefield Street).
Additional emergency repairs may be added if time and money remain in the contract.
WEST HILL PROJECT TRAFFIC
Traffic restrictions have been implemented on West 8th Street and on Climer Street as Haggerty Earthworks, LLC, moves forward with sewer construction in both locations.
Local traffic only is permitted in the 600 and 700 blocks of Climer (West 8th to High streets) with the contractor working with residents on access to their driveways as construction progresses.
Resident will be notified in advance when the 600 and 700 blocks of Climer are closed to all traffic for pavement restoration. Traffic restrictions and street closures will shift as the work moves toward Logan and then from Logan to Lucas on Climer.
West 8th is currently closed to most traffic from Broadway to Main Street with local traffic only permitted. The intersection of West 8th and Lucas is currently closed to all traffic for sewer construction and pavement restoration. Once the intersection is completed, West 8th will be opened but Lucas will remain closed from West 8th to Busch for sewer work and pavement restoration.
