Bond Street will be closed to all traffic starting at 7 a.m. Thursday, May 5, for sewer work in conjunction with the Taylor Park Improvement Project. All-American Concrete, the prime contractor for the work, will close the section of Bond Street between Taylor Park and the Muscatine Slough (from Angle Street to the residences in the 400 block of Bond Street) for approximately eight days.

The underground and pavement restoration work is tentatively scheduled to be completed by the end of the day on Friday, May 13. A detour route around the construction site will be posted using Schiller Street on the north, Taylor/Franklin on the east, and Evans Street on the south. The duration of the closure is weather dependent.

Access to Pete’s Tap and to the residences in the 400 block of Bond Street will be maintained. Taylor Park is currently closed to the public as is the recreational trail from Franklin to Bond streets.

Drivers are urged to slow down, use caution around construction zones, and find alternate routes if possible.
