    MUSCATINE, Iowa – Full depth patching on Cedar Street and replacement of the asphalt pavement on a portion of Leroy Street are scheduled to begin next week according to the City of Muscatine Public Works Department.


    The 2020 Full Depth Patching Program along with the 2020 Asphalt Street Overlay Program were both put on hold last Spring as the City of Muscatine assessed the financial impact of the COVID-19 health crisis. With better than anticipated revenues from the Road Use Tax, several “high priority” projects were given the go-ahead by the Muscatine City Council on October 1, 2020.


    Both programs will be mobilized starting on Monday, October 19, 2020, with Leroy Street closed from Mulberry Avenue to Amherst Avenue for the asphalt overlay project. Lane restrictions will be put in place on Cedar Street on Monday between Muscatine High School and the Cedar Street roundabout for the full depth patching.


    “Due to better than anticipated Road Use Tax revenues, funds are available to be used for roadway maintenance projects,” Brian Stineman, Public Works Director, said.


    101220 Leroy Street 001 (JPG)Public Works identified sections of Cedar Street, Ford Avenue, and Evans Street as high priority concrete streets in need of immediate repair. Heuer Construction, Inc., was the low bidder for the project at $47,710.00. In addition, Public Works identified Leroy Street as high priority asphalt street in need of immediate repair. Taylor Ridge Construction was the low bidder for the project at $43,500.00.


    Cedar Street will be reduced from three-lanes to two-lanes through the work area. Drivers are urged to be alert, watch for construction workers, and to obey traffic control signage. Once Cedar Street is completed, Heuer Construction will move to Ford Avenue. If funds remain and weather permits a section on Evans Street will be repaired before the winter shutdown.


    Milling of Leroy Street is set to begin on Monday, weather permitting, with the asphalt overlay to follow.
