Update: JUNE 20, 2022

Underground work for sanitary and storm sewer construction along with water main work are currently underway in two locations as part of  Phase 5 of the West Hill Sanitary & Storm Sewer Separation project.

The West 8th and Lucas intersection is currently closed to all traffic with Climer Street reduced to local traffic only from West 8th to High Street. The West 8th/Lucas intersection will be closed for approximately 4-6 more weeks as underground work and pavement restoration is completed. Work is also underway to complete the section of West 8th from Broadway to Lucas. Once all West 8th work is completed, traffic will be able to use West 8th. 

Lucas will remain closed between West 8th and Busch as sewer separation and pavement restoration work begins. 

Portions of Climer will be closed throughout the summer and fall. Climer Street residents will be updated regarding street closures in their immediate area as the construction moves toward Logan, and then between Logan and Lucas. Updates to the Road Closure Diagram and Detour map will be provided as the status of the closures changes. Everything is subject to change and dependent on weather conditions.

The Contractor will work to keep all driveways accessible for residents from Busch Street to Main Street as much as practical but periodic closures are possible during what is anticipated to be a 4-to-6-week construction period. The goal of the Contractor is to have the sewer work done and the intersection repaved and open within that time frame. Take note that the sewer project construction on Lucas Street during 2022 will ultimately encompass the area from Busch Street to the curve in Lucas Street just past Green Street. That will include the 900, 1300, 1400, and 1500 blocks of Lucas Street this spring and summer. Advance notice will be given before those areas are closed for construction.

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.
