West Fulliam reconstruction resumes Monday – Voice Of Muscatine

(City of Muscatine)

West Fulliam will be closed to through traffic from just east of Green Acres Drive to the 2100 block of West Fulliam starting at 7 a.m. Monday, June 3, as Phase 2 of the West Fulliam Reconstruction Project begins. Substantial completion of this phase is tentatively scheduled for August 16, 2024.

Westbound through traffic will be detoured at Logan to Cedar and then to Houser. Eastbound through traffic will be detoured down Houser to Cedar and then to Logan.

Eastbound local traffic will be permitted for residents to access their homes from Houser to the construction site including residents on Green Acres Drive and Meadow Lane.

This phase will be completed in three sections to maximize residents’ ability to access their residents. The first section will be the one-half of the West Fulliam intersection with Green Acres Drive and Meadow Lane. Once completed, work will begin on the second half of the intersection and West Fulliam up to the midpoint of the intersection with Westfield Drive. Access for residents on Green Acres Drive and on Meadow Lane will then switch from the west off of Houser to the east off of Logan or Kindler. The third section to be completed will be from the second half of the Westfield Drive intersection up to 2716 West Fulliam.

Phase 2 will include reconstruction of pavement, installation of sidewalk, and replacement and installation of ADA-compliant pedestrian crossings from West Acre Drive to approximately 2716 West Fulliam Avenue. City staff and representatives from the contractor anticipate meeting onsite with residents to keep them informed of the progress and timetable as to when they might be affected by the construction. A timetable has not been established as yet for those meetings but residents will be notified in advance of the time and place.

Heuer Construction, Inc., was awarded the $702,915.00 contract for Phase 2 at the May 16, 2024 Muscatine City Council meeting.
