Phases Of Construction

Update as of August 17, 2017:  

The focus of the contractor is up around 4th Street Park. The contractor is working on the sanitary sewer services on the west side of 4th Street Park at 4th & Broadway and has made it up to Cherry Street. The intersection of Cherry and West 4th is now closed. The paving contractor is finishing the concrete work at the West 4th/Locust Street intersection. Grading for paving is occurring now on Broadway between the #3 and #4 alleys on the east side of the park. Broadway between the #3 and #4 alleys will be paved in the near future. Once the sewer contractor finishes the sewer work up to Cherry and another short section on Cherry Lane they will move down to East 5th to do their sanitary sewer replacement work between Cedar Street and Iowa Avenue.

Muscatine Power and Water will be closing East 5th at the intersection with Cedar to replace the fire hydrant there. This closure will begin either Friday, August 18 or Monday, August 21.
