UPDATE: Dick Drake Way closure postponed to June 12-22 – Voice Of Muscatine

The closure of Dick Drake Way from Highway 61 to Stewart Road has been delayed. West Continent Energy Services, LLC, a subcontractor for Kinder Morgan, will be working on upgrading gas line infrastructure and will need to close the road to safely excavate the pipe that runs under Dick Drake Way.

Sign boards announcing the road closure were scheduled to be put into place this afternoon (June 5) with the closure going into effect at 8 a.m. on Monday, June 12. Work is expected to be completed no later than June 22. Part of Dick Drake Way will be open to local traffic only with a full closer of the road from the Canadian Pacific Rail Road crossing to the entrance of Union Tank Car Company.

The detour will be to use Grandview Avenue to Oregon Street to Stewart Road.
