UPDATE OCTOBER 19, 2021

101821 Grandview Avenue 01 - South from Pearl (JPG)

Heuer Construction, Inc., has completed the driving lanes of the Oregon-Warren intersection with Grandview Avenue, and have completed the center and southbound lanes from Pearl to the railroad crossing. The contractor is now working on the Pearl, Reed, Franklin, and Bond intersection tie-ins, and has completed the Bleeker Street tie-in. Those intersections will remain closed for the time being.


Underground work continues south of the railroad crossing on Grandview Avenue with the Musser Street intersection currently closed to traffic as relocation of water main continues. Water main breaks have also delayed prepping Grandview Avenue south of the railroad for paving, but the contractor remains optimistic to have pavement restored before the weather turns.

 

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

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.
