2022 full depth patching program set to begin Monday, March 21

As warm weather returns so does construction work in Muscatine with the 2022 Full Depth Patching Program and work on the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) punch list for the Park Avenue 4-to-3 Lane Conversion Project set to begin next week. Lane restrictions will be in place as these projects continue.

Heuer Construction, Inc., was awarded the 2022 Full Depth Patching contract and will begin on Monday (March 21) with an emergency repair on Hershey Avenue near the northbound ramps for Highway 61. Once that repair has been completed, Heuer will move to 1608 Cedar Street (near the intersection with Parham).

Also included as part of the 2022 contract is Isett Avenue (Bidwell Road to the Heinz pedestrian entrance), Houser Street (Fulliam Avenue to Dawson Street), Stewart Road (Oregon Avenue to Wallace Street), Robin Road (Sunrise Circle east to end of the concrete), Frontage Road (Cleveland Street to Ford Avenue), and Devitt Avenue (Ridgewood Avenue to Pinefield Street). Additional emergency repairs may be added if time and money remain in the contract.

Heuer Construction, Inc., will also be closing down one outside lane of Park Avenue from Washington to Colorado Tuesday (March 22) to work on the DOT punch list.

Additional traffic notes:

  • Musser Street is closed from the intersection with Wisconsin and Baker to the Grandview intersection as the east side of the Musser-Grandview intersection is prepared for paving.
  • West 8th Street is closed to through traffic from Broadway to Lucas for landscaping and finishing work as part of the West Hill Sanitary & Storm Sewer Separation Project. This section of West 8th will remain closed to through traffic as sewer work begins in the Lucas and West 8th intersection. That work is tentatively scheduled to start March 28. More details on the intersection closure will be announced next week.

Drivers are reminded to slow down and use caution when travelling through the construction zone, obey traffic control devices, and be aware of workers. Use an alternate route if possible.
