Traffic Signal Timing Project & Iowa Avenue
The pre-construction meeting for this project took place the week of April 27th. The contractor (Sternquist Construction) anticipates the project to commence towards the middle of this month. The contract for this project has a late completion date of July 17, 2020. Sternquist will notify the City one week before construction begins to allow for advertisement of the closure of a portion of Iowa Avenue from 1st Street to Jefferson Way. As a reminder, this project will improve the synchronization of the traffic signals on Jefferson Way (US highway 65/69) and 2nd Ave (IA 92). This will help to reduce delays, improve safety along the corridor, and help the environment by reducing emissions from idling. As part of this project, which is being partially funded by a grant, the pavement on Iowa Avenue from 1st Street to Jefferson Way will also be replaced.
