Full depth patching of Houser St continues; Frontage Rd up next

Full depth patching is wrapping up on Houser Street with the action moving to Frontage Road on Friday according to the Muscatine Department of Public Works.

The 2021-2022 Full-Depth Patching Project had a late start due to funding concerns that pushed the bid process into the fall. The $440,800 contract was awarded to Heuer Construction on October 5, 2021, but actual work was delayed until April due to weather and logistic concerns. All work is to be completed by early June.

Heuer completed two emergency repairs, on Hershey Avenue and on Liberty Street, and then completed the first section on the 2021-2022 list, 1600 block of Cedar Street before moving to Houser where repair work is wrapping up.

Heuer Construction is scheduled to begin work on Frontage Road (Ford to Cleveland) starting Friday. Frontage Road will be closed at Ford Avenue to just past the first entrance to the Hong Kong Buffet for the first section to be repaired. Once completed, Heuer will be closing Frontage Road from just past the first entrance to the Hong Kong Buffett to LPI Loans for the second section of work. The third section will be from in front of LPI Loans to Cleveland Street.

Other street segments to be repaired under the Full Depth Patching Project include:

  • Isett Avenue (Bidwell Road to Heinz Pedestrian entrance)
  • Stewart Road (Oregon Avenue to Wallace Street)
  • Robin Road (Sunrise Circle to Centre Drive)
  • Devitt Avenue (Ridgewood Avenue to Pinefield Street)
