Heuer Construction, Inc., was awarded the $7.74 million contract for the two-year Grandview Avenue Reconstruction Project during the April 1 City Council meeting. The project 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 of travel for vehicles and for pedestrians.
The goals of the project are to modernize Grandview Avenue, provide a safe and attractive corridor, improve pavement and utility infrastructure, and enhance the walkability of the Grandview Avenue corridor with enhanced pedestrian opportunities and the incorporation of “green infrastructure”.
The first year of the two-year project will focus on Main Street to Musser Street.
Bolton & Menk were the design consultants. An amended contract was approved by City Council Thursday (April 15) to have the consultants assist with construction phase services including observation and administration of construction activities since Iowa DOT Construction Project Management and Inspection processes must be followed as the project is partially funded by Iowa DOT funds.
Additional information on the project can be found on the City of Muscatine web site at Grandview Avenue Revitalization.
Details of joining the virtual meeting are listed below.
