GRANDVIEW AVENUE CORRIDOR PROJECT - This proposed project includes roadway improvements on the 2.2 mile stretch of Grandview Avenue from Franklin Street to U.S. Highway 61. This presentation was given at the public meeting for Grandview Avenue on January 4, 2017 that was held in coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency and Stockwell Engineers.
GREENING AMERICA'S COMMUNITIES - 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.
