Lucas Street will remain closed to through traffic from North Houser Street to Westwood through January 13, 2023, weather permitting. Needham Excavating has completed installation of sewer and water connections for the Muscatine Community School District Centralized Kitchen that is currently under construction, and is now preparing the section for repaving.
The current forecast indicates that the next available day to pour concrete will be January 9, which means that the section could be reopened to traffic at the end of the day on January 13. That schedule is depending on the weather, however.
Westbound traffic on Lucas is currently detoured north on Houser and then west on Cedar. Eastbound traffic on Lucas is detoured south on the U.S. 61 Bypass to Hershey then east to Houser.
